"Lobbyists, lawmakers have 'educational relationships'"

"At last count, those 300 lobbyists serve nearly 700 clients, from Big Tobacco and Big Oil to the Beavers Bend Lodging Association and Citizens for the Protection of the Arbuckle Simpson Aquifer.

Health care interests are by far the most represented sector. Almost 100 health care-related entities, from doctors to nurses to pharmaceutical companies, have lobbyists at the state Capitol. That's about twice as many as the financial sector, which is next on the list."

Tulsa World has more.
