If you are being paid to support or oppose legislation in Montana, you must in most cases be licensed as a lobbyist by the state Commissioner of Political Practices.
The license fee is $150 unless the commissioner waives the fee because you believe that its payment constitutes a hardship. You also may not have to be licensed if the amount paid for supporting or opposing legislation falls below a threshold outlined in state law.
Lobbyist licenses expire on December 31 of each even-numbered year or at the request of the lobbyist. For more information, contact:
