Perfect climate for lobbyists?

February 25, 2009

The Center for Public Integrity reports that more than 770 organizations have hired an estimated 2,340 lobbyists who earned an estimated $90 million last year to influence the federal government on climate change legislation.

The Center’s website has a search form so you can see who’s lobbying for who and for how much.

No word on who, if anyone, will be lobbying on behalf of consumers and taxpayers.
