NET RESULTS: BRONCOS PAY $62,000 TO LOBBY FOR NEW STADIUM

          The Broncos spent almost $62,000 to win passage of a
     bill authorizing a vote on a new football stadium during
     this year's legislative session, according to Peggy Lowe of
     the DENVER POST.  The money paid for 13 "high-powered
     lobbyists" who worked to get measure SB 171 approved by the
     General Assembly.  The "primary" lobbyist for the Broncos,
     Bill Artist, reported $5,000 in income from the Broncos for
     the four-month session, while Porter Wharton III, "the most
     visible of the Broncos lobbyists," reported $33,950 from the
     team during the session.  The law firm of Brownstein, Hyatt,
     Farber & Strickland reported billing the Broncos $22,748,
     not counting April records (DENVER POST, 5/23).
