Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today filed a local law with the County Legislature to require lobbyists for entities seeking contracts with Nassau County government to register with the County Attorney for the first-time in history. Under the proposed law, contractors and vendors would also be required to disclose their lobbying activities related to the Executive, Legislature, County departments and County committees.
County Executive Mangano stated, “Presently contracts require approval by the County Attorney, County Legislature, Comptroller and NIFA. This new law will bring additional transparency by requiring contractors and vendors to disclose their lobbying activities – by registering with the County Attorney and Clerk of the Legislature – and file annual and quarterly reports, which will be available on the county website.”
