Lobbyist Data - Employers
Employers of registered lobbyists as reported in the Lobbyist Statement of Registration. Due to requirements for lobbyists to re-register, the importance of showing year for most lobbying-related data, and some employers being reported by multiple lobbyists, the same employer often will have multiple records
