Rick Snyder has signed a bill that requires lobbyists to register and pay for their registration with the state.
The registration is for two years, and it only requires that they be in the state for a certain period of time.
The lobbyists must have at least one day a month off in the past five years.
The state will also be required to pay a $1,000 annual fee to the lobbying firm that manages the state’s lobbying registry.
Michigan will also impose a 10-year ban on lobbying for political purposes.
Snyder signed the bill into law Monday.
