Subject: Lobbyists

Date: Feb. 2


The Wall Street Journal examines the competition that the announced tax cuts have kindled among lobbyists in Washington. The reporters find that, "eager to enlarge their share, competing business blocs nay set off bidding war." The story sheds light on the effort of some of the biggest U.S. companies to "unify around one or two big cuts to get the largest possible share," and finds that "unity among disparate corporate interests is so far proving harder than business leaders would like." The story includes a sidebar with information about the top five donors to the House Ways and Means Committee members, as well as to the Senate Finance Committee members.
