Description

The Daily Oklahoman identifies questionable lobbyists' expenditures in a three-story package. The reporters reveal that "government agencies are using taxpayer dollars to lobby for more taxpayer dollars." The package investigates how "taxpayers' money is used to lobby for new taxes" and the practice of public agencies "to pay large salaries to lobbyists, who in turn pass part of the money on to state legislators in the form of campaign contributions and honoraria."
