With GOP backing, bill to reduce what lobbyists report spending on lawmakers passes House

By Jerod MacDonald-Evoy | Arizona Mirror

A bill that would let lobbyists disclose only the price of what it costs to feed elected officials at luncheons and other events and not the actual cost paid for their admission to the event has been approved by the House of Representatives and is one step closer to becoming law.

The measure, House Bill 2038, is sponsored by veteran Republican lawmaker Rep. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, and was mostly passed along party lines with Republicans voting in favor of the measure and all but one Democrat voting against it.

Rep. Daniel Hernandez, D-Tucson, was the sole Democrat to vote for the bill. He was not immediately available for comment.

Arizona law currently requires lobbyists to disclose what was spent for a politician or government employee to attend events.
