This list is by the lobbyist, with a list of their clients and their fee for each client. They vary, some are 'annual fee', some 'hourly fee', some 'monthly fee.'
Check out how much different organizations are paying to get continuous monitoring of legislation and access to legislators. And consider how much you are paying for this kind of service.
I really haven't had much time to look at this list carefully, but, for example, I'd note that GCI pays:
- Ashley Reed $50,000 a year"All legislation, and administrative activities,regarding or impacting phone andtelecommunications services"
- Reed Stoops $40,000 a year for "All telecommunications issues relating to GCIsinternet, cable, telephone, wireless and TVbusiness in Alaska."
- Sam Kito Jr. $40,000 a year for"All things regarding telecommunication issuesand broadcasting issues"
