FREDERICTON - The New Brunswick government has again introduced legislation to create a lobbyist registry after attempts in the past failed.
The Lobbyists' Registration Act would identify professional lobbyists and who they represent.
It would also require lobbyists to pay a registration fee, and they would be subject to fines of up to $25,000 for various offences including failing to register, provide accurate information and making misleading statements.
Repeat offenders could face fines of up to $100,000.
