2017 Lobbying Report is out now

Common Cause Nebraska's new report on lobbying is out now.

Lobbying must pay off, since the investment grows with each year! 2016 saw another million-dollar increase in lobby spending. That means 543 principals (special interests) paid 364 lobbyists $16,754,795 to influence our state government. If the lobbying money were to be distributed evenly each lobbyist would earn $46,029, while our forty-nine legislators are earning $12,000.
