Stray thought: A variety of advocates have been engaged in the opposition to Pulaski Quorum Court adoption of land use rules for the Lake Maumelle watershed. A lobbyist is one who is paid or reimbursed expenses of $400 in a quarter to influence government. This includes attempting to influence city and county government agencies. Those who attempt to influence county governments must register with the county clerk. The Pulaski County clerk's fairly comprehensive website doesn't include a category for lobbyist registration. I'll check Monday to see what, if anything, is on file.
