Representative Joshi, sponsor, presented House Bill 16-1221 to the committee. The bill restricts spending by state agencies and institutions of higher education on lobbying expenses and membership fees beginning in FY 2016-17. Specifically, state agencies and institutions must restrict spending on lobbying expenses and membership fees to no more than 50 percent of the amount spent on these items in FY 2015-16. For FY 2016-17 and beyond, the General Assembly must make a General Fund appropriation to the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing to increase Medicaid provider rates by an equal amount as the required spending reduction on lobbying expenses and membership fees.



Representative Joshi provided copies of two research memos concerning lobbying expenses and membership fees (Attachments C and D).
