The above named Lobbyist and/or Principal does hereby agree that any electronic signature appearing on this document is deemed to be the same as a handwritten signature for the purposes of validity, enforceability, and admissibility and shall be deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original executed copy of this document for all purposes.
