The Pay to Play Express: 2022 Lobby Report Released!

In their recently submitted annual filings, lobbyists reported record compensation in 2021 for their labors to influence Nebraska’s state government. Despite a lingering pandemic, last year’s total of $20,789,181 was some $2,000,000 more than that of 2020.

It is not idle chatter when someone says: “if you want to get something done at the capitol, hire a lobbyist.” What they are actually saying is it will take money to get something done by state government.

In the report that follows, we’ll break down the numbers to show how much money it takes and who provides it.
