19-62-1 Who must register. (a) Em-
ployed lobbyists. Each person whose employment
is, to a considerable degree, for the purpose of
lobbying shall register as a lobbyist. A person is
employed if the person receives compensation for
or in direct relation to lobbying regardless of the
technical legal definition of the relationship be-
tween the principal and the lobbyist. An executive
of an organization who as part of the executive's
duties only incidentally lobbies shall not be re-
quired to register under this subsection. However,
where a person is employed to a considerable de-
gree for the purpose of lobbying, it is irrelevant
that the lobbying employment is not a substantial
amount of the person's overall business. In deter-
mining whether an individual is employed to a
considerable degree to lobby, that portion of the
employment which relates to preparation for lob-
bying shall be taken into consideration.

 (b)  Appointed lobbyists. Any person formally
appointed as the primary representative of an or-
ganization or of another person to lobby on state-
owned or leased property shall register as a lob-
byist regardless of whether the person receives
compensation for lobbying. Formal appointment
as a primary representative may be indicated by
election to a specific office or designation, includ-
ing a specific post where the members of the or-
ganization or appointing person recognize such
election or designation to include the right or duty
to lobby as its primary representative on state-
owned or leased property. Generally, where an
organization or other person has an employed lob-
byist, members lobbying on behalf of the organi-
zation shall not be deemed the primary represen-
tative of the organization or other person for the
purposes of this registration provision. Where an
appointment is made in conjunction with an em-
ployment status as set out in subsection (a) of this
section, the provisions of that subsection shall
control as to whether the employed person must
register as a lobbyist.

 (c)  Persons making lobbying expenditures. Any
person who makes ``expenditures'' for lobbying as
defined in K.A.R. 19-60-3(c), in an aggregate
amount of $100 or more in any calendar year shall
register as a lobbyist.

 (d)  Exceptions to the rules governing who
must register.

 (1)  Those persons covered by K.S.A. 1991
Supp. 46-222(b) shall not be required to register
as lobbyists.

 (2)  When an individual accepts a limited num-
ber of bona fide invitations from a state agency or
subdivision thereof to appear before it for the pur-
pose of providing information to such agency, the
individual shall not be required to register as a
lobbyist under subsections (a) and (b) of this sec-
tion solely on account of such appearances. How-
ever, subsection (c) of this regulation applies to
such situations. (Authorized by K.S.A. 1991 Supp.
