    You are a registered lobbyist working in a state that requires reporting for grassroots lobbying.

      Don’t use any special codes. We’re libertarians and we do what we want!

      Code your morning time and expenses as 11 and your afternoon time and expenses as 12 so they can be easily found at reporting time
