Follow the Money: Streamlined States Lobbying Total Nearly $1 Million

$180,000 per year since 2010 spent on “federal affairs” AKA lobbying.  Following their budget into next year, the Streamlined States group will have spent just under a combined $1 million lobbying for this.  And they are just one part of the pro-Marketplace Fairness Act funding juggernaut.  It’s mostly big box retailers, along with large commercial property owners (like malls), Tax compliance firms… those who would benefit.

So how much has the recently formed Emainstreet.org group spent lobbying?  Nothing.  It’s strictly a loose alliance of small business owners who have rallied together to fight this disaster of a bill.  Really, there are VERY few dollars spent lobbying on the anti-MFA side.  Ebay is the only significant opponent with lobbying abilities.
