Enter the aggregate sum of all expenditures incurred for food, refreshments or entertainment as a result of your efforts to promote a desired legislative outcome or obtain the goodwill of a legislative official.
NOTE: All sections that follow are for the purpose of itemizing certain expenditures included in the “Total Expended". All sections are limited to reporting expenses for food, refreshments, and entertainment.
Click “+ Add an Expense" to enter information about each lobby expense that was reimbursed to you in the quarter (the names of the clients or employers who provided reimbursements and the amounts reimbursed). Click the “Check here for none" box if no expenses were reimbursed to you.
NOTE: The information you input for “Total Expended" and “Reimbursed Expenses" auto-calculates and fills the “Total Reimbursed" and “Net Expenditures" fields that follow.
Click to “+Add an Itemized Expense" only if more than $50 was expended on any single occasion, by one or more persons on a lobbying-related activity, for the benefit of a legislative or executive official. Expenditures for relatives are considered “for the benefit" of the official. If more than one person financially contributed on the occasion, you must list their name(s) in the next section (see “Additional Contributors" below). Click the “Check here for none" box if you have no itemized expenses to report.
Click “+ Add a Contributor" to report the name of any person or entity that contributed to paying any expense(s) that you were required to report under “Itemized Expenses" [OAR 199-010-0075(2)(c)]. Click the “Check here for none" box if you have no additional contributors to report.
Some lobby-related expenditures require you to give the receiving public official written notice of the value of the expense within 10 days. Notice must be given if either: (a) the cost of food, lodging and/or travel spent on the public official to attend any single event defined in ORS 244.020(7)(b)(F) exceeds a combined total of $50; or (b) the full market value of honoraria given to the public official pursuant to ORS 244.042 is worth more than $15. Attach copies of such notices to this report [ORS 244.100].
Once all required information is accurately entered, click the green “Submit" icon at the bottom of your screen. A pop-up box will appear – type your first and last name (i.e., as it appears in the upper right-hand corner of your screen, “Welcome, [NAME]") into the “Electronic Signature" field, check “Confirmed", and then click “File Report".
If unable to complete the report in one sitting, you can always click “Save and File Later" at the bottom of the screen. To continue working on a saved report, locate it in your “Reports" tab, and click the corresponding “+" symbol in the “Edit/Amend" column.
