Is providing testimony to the Air Pollution Control Board during a rulemaking hearing considered “executive branch lobbying”?

The Executive Branch Lobbying Rule applies to contacts with the environmental rulemaking boards such as Air Pollution Control, Water Pollution Control, and Solid Waste Management. However,  because of the “solicitation exception” found in 25 IAC 6-1-1(7)(G) and the Public Hearing exception found in 25 IAC 6-1-1(7)(E), testifying on a proposed rule at an environmental board meeting, or submitting written comments in response to a published rulemaking request, would not be considered “executive branch lobbying.”
