116 Arizona lobbyists could face attorney general investigation

By Alia Beard Rau | The Republic

The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office has referred 116 lobbyists to the Attorney General’s Office after they failed to file paperwork detailing which public officials they were spending money on and why.

According to state records acquired by The Arizona Republic Friday, the lobbyists did not file the 2017 second-quarter expenditure reports required under state law.

The reports provide details about which public official the lobbyist spent money on, what was paid for and which company benefited. The expenditures can include dinners, speaking engagements, travel, athletic events, parties, concerts, hotels or gifts.

The reports were due by July 31. The Secretary of State’s Office emailed all the lobbyists who had not filed by Sept. 1 to notify them that they were in violation and that the state may take further corrective action.
