Nebraska Lobbyist Earnings Reach an All-Time High

Lobbyists seeking to influence Nebraska state lawmakers are pulling in more money than ever before, according to a new analysis of public records by Common Cause Nebraska. Last year, 573 groups or entities called “principals” paid 391 lobbyists $17.8 million, up $400,000 over the previous year -- an increase that stayed well ahead of inflation and left government salaries in the dust, the report states.


Another Record

In Nebraska, the lobbyist’s tools appear unlimited. Not only can the lobbyist wine, dine, and entertain but they can donate to political campaigns, host campaign fundraisers, and solicit campaign funds from their clients. With that toolkit, the lobbyist can open nearly any door.
