From Sunday’s New York Times, “Business Lobby Presses Agenda Before ’08 Vote.”
The thesis of this political/business round-up story by Robert Pear — a very good, conscientious reporter — is that business groups like the National Association of Manufacturers are stepping up lobbying activities out of concern the next Administration could be less supportive of pro-growth (our term) policies.
Seems like we’re always busy around here, and the pace is bound to pick up as Congress nears the end of the year and rushes to pass major legislation. But, sure, the political uncertainty of an election year increases the motivation for getting reasonable laws and regulations on the books.
Possible follow-up story: Big labor wants union backers to win election.
