Where have Pa. lobbyists spent the most? Not on lobbying reform

Published by Andrew McGill on .

Take a look at this report on lobbying disclosures from WITF's Mary Wilson: Apparently more than a few Harrisburg politicos neglected to disclose free tickets they received to a Philadelphia gala.

Full list is after the jump, but why don't we have some fun first. Take a guess:

What is the top priority for Pennslyvania lobbyists? free polls  
What issue got the least money? free polls
