Description: 

The complaint alleged that Cascadia Law Group, as a lobbyist firm, and Jay Manning, as an agent or employee of Cascadia Law Group who lobbied in 2015, may have violated RCW 42.17A.605 and .615 by failing to: (1) timely file monthly Lobbyist Expense Reports (L-2 reports) disclosing lobbying activities; (2) disclose the percentage of time spent lobbying the Legislature or State Agencies on the L-2 report, and (3) file a lobbyist photograph along with the Lobbyist Biography page along with the Lobbyist Registration (L-1 report).

 

The three L-2 reports were filed one to two days late by Cascadia Law Group, and prior to PDC staff sending out warning letters for missing or late filed L-2 reports during calendar year 2015.  PDC staff reminded the Cascadia Law Group, Mr. Manning and Ms. Turner about the importance of the timely disclosure of all lobbying related activities addressed to the Washington State Legislature or any Washington State agency for any client in the future, and closed this matter with a reminder.
