In America, we have a system of government of, by, and for the people — a democracy in which everyone has an equal voice and our elected officials are held accountable to our needs.
But today, wealthy special interests and their lobbyists have thrown our system out of balance. They make the rules, they set the agenda, and they do it by drowning out the voices of the other 99-plus percent of citizens.
In Nebraska, we know that well-connected insiders have more access to our elected officials and can exert much more influence than the rest of us. That’s why we’re working to improve disclosure of lobbying activities and close the “revolving door” by requiring a cooling off period before former lawmakers can become paid lobbyists.
Take a look at our latest lobby report. We put together a yearly report on who the biggest spenders are on Nebraska lobbying and the tactics they use to influence lawmakers. 2017 CCNE Lobby Report
