California lobbyists will soon see their registration fees double under a bill passed by a large margin in the state Senate Wednesday, according to the Sacramento Bee.
 
The legislation, which has already passed the state House, now heads to Gov. Jerry Grown for his signature.
 
The new law, pushed by the government watchdog group California Common Cause, requires lobbyists and political committees to pay a $50 annual fee for the privilege of lobbying state lawmakers and government officials.
 
The fee is expected to generate at least $600,000 to help improve and maintain the Cal-Access online database, which tracks lobbying activity and campaign finances. The state lobbyist association supported the legislation.
