The effectiveness of legislative lobbying in the state of Florida
This research looks at the effectiveness of state lobbying in Florida. It evaluates effectiveness through the use of eight case studies: the sugar lobby and the cleanup in the Florida Everglades; the lobby for a raise for tomato pickers in the state; the lobby for increased advertising money for state tourism; the tourism lobby and offshore drilling; the lobby for more accessible healthcare on behalf of state insurance companies; the lobby for an increased tobacco tax; the high-speed rail lobby; and the red light camera lobby. The study concludes that lobbying in Florida is generally effective as groups achieved their desired goals in seven out of eight cases.
