K Street Reaps Major Rewards Lobbying On Healthcare Legislation
K Street appears to have cashed in on the lengthy battle over healthcare reform.
About 1,750 businesses and organizations spent at least $1.2 billion in 2009 to lobby on health reform and other issues, according to a study from the Center for Public Integrity released Friday. A precise figure isn’t available because lobbying disclosure forms don’t require companies or other groups to itemize how much they spend to lobby on a particular issue.
