This report provides a measure of the lobbying activity directed toward specific proposals that were before Wisconsin’s legislature during the 2011 - 2012 legislative session. Each of the 754 organizations that employed lobbyists in Wisconsin during the 2011-2012 legislative session has reported to the Government Accountability Board the number of hours and dollars it spent on lobbying-related efforts. Each also provided the Government Accountability Board with its estimate of the portion of its lobbying efforts associated with specific proposals.
The number of hours of lobbying-related activity reported for each proposal is derived from each lobbying organization's estimate of the hours it devoted to lobbying on that proposal during each 6 month reporting period within the 2011-2012 legislative session. True totals may be slightly greater for some proposals because an organization did not have to report time it devoted to a proposal if the time amounted to less than 10% of its total lobbying effort.
Due to the rounding of percentages and the formulas used to generate this report, all totals are accurate within a margin of +/- 1.
Detailed reports for individual lobbying organizations and lobbyists are available at the Board's Eye on Lobbying website.
