Third quarter reports show spending is down again.
I saw a pattern on Eric Brown’s Political Activity Law Blog entry for today – articles talking about lobbying spending. Each one comes to us from The Hill and each one tells of dropping numbers. I thought they were significant, so here they are:
Staff article: “Lobbying Revenue – Third Quarter 2011”
“Influence industry officially in a funk” by Kevin Bogardus and Rachel Leven
“Chamber of Commerce and legal affiliate report spending $45.8M on lobbying” by Kevin Bogardus
