By the numbers: More companies are lobbying Jones Street in 2019

More companies appear to be aiming lobbyists at the North Carolina General Assembly in 2019. The latest figures out of the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office show 1,062 entities - from companies to municipalities - have registered lobbyists working on behalf of their agendas on Jones Street. None of those companies registered lobbyists in the state a year ago, yet, in the latest report, Bird, Lime, Lyft and Airbnb all have representation in the registry.
