Lobbying money bonanza-Xmas in Jan-May

1- Cable companies don't want competition from ATT
2- City and county officials don't want to lose "their" franchise fees.
3- ATT wants access to new customers
4- Lobbyists want more money
5- Politicians want more contributions

$11 million was spent last year on lobbying for the cable vs ATT bill last year.
