Is the Unicameral Listening to Voters or Lobbyists?
Common Cause Nebraska’s 2015 Lobby Report gives Nebraskans an opportunity to compare lobbying activity over a four-year period. By compiling and analyzing data reported by Legislators, Lobbyists, and principles, it’s clear that spending to influence state policy continues to increase.
This report looks at both the 103rd and 104th Legislatures and, where possible, includes statistics reported for 2015.
Common Cause Nebraska believes all people and all organizations should be encouraged to make their opinions heard. Professional lobbyists are excellent communicators and providers of information. It is gift-giving, entertainment and campaign contributions that create ethical questions and public concern. Common Cause continues to encourage legislation that eliminates these questionable practices and limits the influence of big money on the legislative process
