NET RESULTS: BRONCOS PAY $62,000 TO LOBBY FOR NEW STADIUM
Published May 27, 1998
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).
