Lee Drutman talked about the industries and groups lobbying during the “fiscal cliff” negotiations in hopes that their interests will be spared in any resolution, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Topics included how lobbyists could complicate any deal-making, money spent lobbying in the 112th Congress, and lobbying versus bribery.

“Fiscal cliff” referred to impending tax increases and budget cuts at the end of 2012 if Congress failed to reach a budget agreement.

Nancy Calo read news headlines from C-SPAN Radio at the end of the program. close
