These attached documents summarize reported lobbying expenditures for the 2009-2010 session through June 30, 2010.
This report provides a measure of the lobbying activity directed toward specific proposals that were before Wisconsin’s legislature during the 2009-2010 legislative session. Each of the 782 organizations that employed lobbyists in Wisconsin during the 2009-2010 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 2009-2010 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 percent 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.
