No Sequester of Lobbying Money — Spending Is Up

Some companies, associations and issue groups have filed their lobbying reports early and many have shown increases in spending. First-quarter issues of sequester allocations, passage of the fiscal 2013 authorization for the rest of the year, and the president’s budget submission for fiscal 2014 may have pushed lobbying budgets higher.

The reports are due today on their lobbying activities and expenditures in the first quarter of 2013. Here are the names of a selected few, what they spent in the first quarter of 2013, and what they spent in the last quarter of 2012.
