Report of Lobbyist Employer or Report of Lobbying Coalition
Form 635 is the quarterly disclosure statement filed by a lobbyist employer or a lobbying coalition. For employers and lobbying coalitions filing on paper, a separate Form 615 must be completed for each in-house lobbyist and attached to Form 635. Electronic or online filers file these as separate documents.
