A large group of people decides to visit Olympia to lobby on a particular issue. For example, a delegation from a local chamber of commerce charters a bus, travels to Olympia to rally on the capitol steps, meet with legislators and host a legislative reception.

In lieu of each member of the delegation registering as a lobbyist for this brief visit, the group leader may register on an L-1 prior to the actual lobbying taking place and report the expenses of all members of the group on an L-2 form.

The L-2 is due on the 15th of the month following the one in which the lobbying occurred. Generally, this person will terminate their registration after completing the L-2 report that discloses the expenditures for the trip by amending the registration.
