Honorariums and Expense Reports – RSA 15-B and 14-C

 

EXECUTIVE BRANCH Honorarium or Expense Reimbursement Report

RSA 15-B Purpose. The purpose of this chapter is to ensure that the performance of official duties does not give rise to a conflict of interest, by prohibiting certain gifts and by requiring certain persons to file with the secretary of state a report of any honorarium or expense reimbursement received.

LEGISLATIVE BRANCH Honorarium or Expense Reimbursement Report

RSA 14-C Purpose. The purpose of this chapter is to ensure that persons charged with carrying out the duties and activities of the legislative branch of state government do so in an atmosphere that supports the independent judgment of such persons and minimizes the opportunity for inappropriate influence by persons or organizations subject to or likely to become subject to or interested in any matter or action pending in the legislative branch. To that end, this chapter defines gifts that may not be given to, solicited by, or accepted by persons subject to the provisions of the chapter and establishes requirements for the reporting of honorariums, expense reimbursements, and certain other receipts.

Lobbyist Monthly Statement of Income and Expenses
(RSA Chapter 15)

Each lobbyist shall file with the Secretary of State itemized statements under oath of all fees received from any lobbying client that are related, directly or indirectly, to lobbying, such as public advocacy, government relations, or public relations services including research, monitoring legislation, and related legal work. RSA 15:6, I(a). The statement shall also include all expenditures made from lobbying fees, including by whom paid or to whom charged, any honorarium or expense reimbursement, as defined in RSA 15-B, or political contribution, as defined in RSA 664, made by the lobbyist in his or her professional or personal capacity, on behalf of the lobbyist, the partnership, firm, or corporation, or by the lobbyist on behalf of the client or employer or by a family member of the lobbyist. Family member shall mean any person related to and living in the same domicile as the lobbyist, who share a common economic interest in the expenses of daily living, including, but not limited to a spouse, child, or parents. RSA 15:6, I(b) and (c).


The last statement due for lobbyists who were registered for the 2019 session was January 30, 2020. Statements for lobbyists registered for the 2020 legislative session shall be filed no later than the last Wednesday of April (April 29, 2020), July (July 29, 2020), October (October 28, 2020) and January (January 27, 2021) and will cover all fees received and expenditures, contributions, honorariums, or expense reimbursements made since the last required filing, from fees received at any time from a lobbying client or employer or from funds otherwise provided by the lobbyist, partnership, firm, or corporation, or from the client or employer. RSA 15:5, II.


A separate statement shall be filed by a lobbyist for each client for whom there has been reportable transactions. A separate statement may be filed for transactions which have been made by the lobbyist or lobbying partnership, firm, or corporation which are unrelated to any specific client, for example reporting a political contribution made by a lobbyist family member. If there has been no change to the aggregate year to date income reported on the last statement filed and there have been no other reportable transactions relative to a particular client or by the lobbyist/lobbyist firm unrelated to any client, an abbreviated report (summary page only) may be filed in lieu of a full statement.
