Makes it a Level 6 felony for a governmental entity to expend money to engage a lobbyist or a legislative liaison using tax revenue. Specifies that such an agreement is void. Invalidates any state appropriation that is made from a fund that receives revenue derived from the imposition of a state tax if the appropriation is to pay expenses related to the Council of State Governments, the National Conference of State Legislatures, or the National Conference of Insurance Legislators. Prohibits the allotment of money from the fund for these purposes.
