Follow the Money Tracking Companies' Influence on Politics
Free business journalism training before the conference
Come to a free Reynolds Center workshop on Wednesday, June 13, the afternoon before the IRE Conference. Bring the name of a company you follow to this workshop and learn how to track its efforts at political influence from two experts: New York Times reporter Ron Nixon and Sunlight Foundation editorial director Bill Allison.
They will help you:
Find campaign contributions and lobbying expenditures by companies at the state and federal level;
Tie company spending on candidates or lobbying to legislative or regulatory actions;
Find corporate contributions to independent groups.
