Organized Labor Groups Lead the Way When It Comes ..

If someone were to ask you which special interest groups raised and spent the most money on lobbying and political campaigns in New Jersey over the last 13 years, what would your answer be?  In a report released earlier this week by the Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC), 4 out of the top 5 groups that raised and spent the most money on lobbying and political campaigns over the last 13 years were organized labor, with the New Jersey Education Association leading the way with $37 million and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) coming in second with $26 million.  The report also distinguished between money spent by Political Action Committees (PACs) and money spent on lobbying.  Organized labor PACs spent over $100 million compared to $38 million by business PACs.  To view the ELEC report see here.
