Lobbying in Rhode Island

The Department of State is Rhode Island’s central hub that connects, informs, and empowers Rhode Islanders. Ensuring full transparency in government for all stakeholders and the general public is one of the Department of State’s primary responsibilities.

State law requires lobbyists, lobbying firms, and their clients to register with us and to report a variety of data regarding their activities. We encourage you to use Lobby Tracker, our searchable database that includes the name of every registered lobbyist in the state, as well as their legislative and executive branch issues, compensation and clients.


Lobby Tracker 2017

You can quickly see who has registered lobbying relationships by clicking the “Who is lobbying in RI” button below. In February, we will offer the new and improved Lobby Tracker, a searchable database of reports summarizing the lobbying of state government, compensation received for lobbying as well as the issues and officials being lobbied.
