This bill prohibits the use of federal, state, or local funds for lobbying activities. It defines "public funds" as a grant or appropriation from a government entity. The bill states that no public funds can be used for lobbying, attempting to influence legislation, participating in political activity, or contributing funds to any entity for these purposes. If an entity engages in these prohibited activities, a taxpayer or resident of the state can seek injunctive relief to prevent further activity and recover attorney's fees and costs. Any person who knowingly authorizes spending of public funds in violation of this law is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor and personally liable for three times the amount wrongfully paid or expended. The bill also allows for the discharge of an employee who knowingly violates this law. However, the bill does not limit an entity's ability to provide information that does not advocate for or against political candidates or legislation. The bill takes effect on January 1, 2025. The fiscal impact of the bill is indeterminable, as it may affect the judicial and correctional systems and could result in civil cases and associated costs.
