Lobbying Year End_Rich copy.jpg

FILE- In this May 6, 2013 file photo, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, center, holds up a legislative package surrounded by state lawmakers after signing into law new limits on how much money lobbyists can spend while trying to influence Georgia public officials, in Atlanta. Golf games. Big meals. Sports tickets. Georgia officials have been cashing in on lobbyist gifts that would likely prove illegal once a new law takes effect next year. While individual officials have broken the spirit of the new law, its pending implementation seems to reduced overall lobbyist spending over the course of the year. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)
