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.
