Municipal and county officials may accept invitations to attend local government meetings hosted by a lobbyist's principal unless given to influence the recipients' official actions. If accepted, those local government officials who are required to file a Statement of Economic Interests must make the appropriate disclosure pursuant to S.C. Code Section 8-13-710(A). Provided that all invitees are treated equally, the host is not obligated to ensure that it has no issues currently pending before any local governmental bodies who may be represented at the meeting.
