Texas league in Top 20 lobbyists for sixth year
AUSTIN, Texas (1/25/11)--For the sixth year consecutive year, the Texas Credit Union League was among the top 20 lobbyists in the state--out of 1,200 eligible state trade associations--as rated by the Texas-based Capitol Inside political website. The league was the only financial services group ranked in the top 20 Texas Lobby Power list. At the top of the list are some of the largest political action committees (PACs) in the state. While the league’s PAC is more modest, it is among the top 60 PACs in Texas and has broken fundraising records nationally among credit union state trade associations. Capitol Inside ranks the relative lobby power of different groups in the Texas politics. Using a combination of Texas Ethics Commission records, research, institutional knowledge and conversations with lobbyists, lawmakers, consultants and others within the State Capitol community, the group releases the results each year. With the league’s lobby team of Chief Advocacy Officer Buddy Gill, Vice President of Government Relations Jeff Huffman, and three state contract lobbyists, the TCUL lobby team has more than 75 years of combined direct lobbying experience in Texas.
