January 2017 is a critical month for ethics and campaign finance compliance, both at the federal and state levels. 2016 Year-end Federal campaign finance reports are due for candidates, PACs and Parties by January 31. In Louisiana, annual Lobbyist registration is also due by the end of the month, as well as state PACs’ annual Statement of Organization filing, with the required $100 filing fees. For further information or assistance with these filings please contact our office located next to the state capitol in Baton Rouge or call 225-767-7163.
