Your Generate host likes looking at the Lobbying Disclosure Act database, where you can learn things like....
Coal giant Peabody Energy has tapped Polsinelli PC, including former Rep. John Shadegg, to lobby on, well, something or other. The newly posted Lobbying Disclosure Act registration filing simply says, "legislation related to energy issues." (Reminder: LDA filings are often really vague, which frustrates transparency advocates.)
Fulcrum Bioenergy, Inc. has brought on Hogan Lovells US LLP to lobby. The company, which won a USDA loan guarantee a few years ago, seeks to turn household garbage into low-carbon transportation fuels.
FuelCell Energy, Inc. has signed up Foley & Lardner LLP, including former Rep. Scott Klug, to lobby on their behalf. The goal, according to their filing, is to "restore fuel cell tax credits and Department of Energy fuel cell research funding."
Northeast Public Power Association has hired Meguire Whitney, LLC to lobby for them, and their form lists the issues as "energy, utilities, nuclear, tax."
