TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — For the second straight year, New Jersey's powerful teachers union has topped the list of lobbyist spending by special interest groups.
The New Jersey Education Association spent $11.3 million in 2011 — more than any other single group ever, according to an analysis released Wednesday by the state Election Law Enforcement Commission. Verizon, which came in second to the NJEA, spent $1.2 million and the AFL-CIO spent $794,000.
