More than $17 million spent on lobbying during 2017

2017 was another record year for lobbying in Nebraska.

“Almost $17.5 million tops the most ever that’s been earned by the lobby,” Gould tells Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KLIN. “In light of the fact that we’ve never seen an increase in the senators’ money for their salaries from $12,000, and the governor’s cutting everybody’s budget, the lobby seems to be doing very well.”
