The expenditures included in this report consist primarily of employees’ compensation and benefits attributable to federal lobbying activities, lobbying fees paid to outside lobbying firms, trade association dues attributable to federal lobbying activities, travel and incidental expenses related to federal lobbying activities and overhead expenses attributable to federal lobbying activities.
