No. “Executive branch action” does not contemplate permit or license negotiation or administration. Thus you would not be considered an “Executive branch lobbyist” in your efforts to influence an agency in that regard. However, you should be aware, that in accordance with the state ethics laws (IC 4-2-6-1) you would still be considered to have a “business relationship” with that agency and the state ethics code would apply accordingly.
