An association is a lobbying principal subject to Wisconsin’s lobbying law if
(1) it reimburses a member for lost wages in connection with lobbying on the
association’s behalf and (2) the member communicates with state officials
other than the legislators from the member’s own district, on more than 4
days in a 6-month reporting period.
A lobbying principal may not, consistent with the lobbying law, reimburse its
members’ campaign contributions that are furnished at a time not permitted
to the principal.
