2017 Lobbying Report is out now

Posted by Gavin Geis on May 15, 2017


Lobbying must pay off, since the investment grows with each year! 2016 saw another million-dollar increase in lobby spending. That means 543 principals (special interests) paid 364 lobbyists $16,754,795 to influence our state government. If the lobbying money were to be distributed evenly each lobbyist would earn $46,029, while our forty-nine legislators are earning $12,000.
