About Lobbyist Reporting

A $350 fee is required when a lobbyist re-registers each January or when a new lobbyist registers for the first time. Individuals who lobby Cook County officials must file a semi-annual Activity & Expenditure Report by January 20 and July 20 each year.

Lobbyists who miss the deadline are subject to an initial $50-per-day penalty. Those who fail to comply by the end of the month in which the report is due face fines of $150 per day.
