Visualization: Lobbying by the Numbers

April 30 marked the end of the fiscal year for lobbyist registrations in Virginia.

VPAP has released a new visualization looking back at the 2,182 registrations filed in 2016-17 with the Virginia Conflict of Interest and Ethics Advisory Council.

It illustrates the growth in the number of lobbying clients since 2005, shows the number of clients most lobbyists represent, and reveals how many clients make political contributions.
