Today, TRP founding partners Chris Lamond and Andy Rosenberg were, once again, named as Top Lobbyists in The Hill’s annual list for 2023. Notably, Lamond and Rosenberg were cited as one of the top “hired guns” in The Hill’s list, as they “stand out for the results they’ve delivered for their clients, companies, trade associations and advocacy groups in the nation’s capital.”
In January, Capitol Hill opened its doors to lobbyists once again after pandemic restrictions were lifted. That means corporate lobbyists, hired guns, association leaders and grassroots activists are back in full force, and these top lobbyists have had to navigate a divided Congress — and not just the traditional Republican and Democratic divisions.
As legislating ground to a halt amid debt ceiling battles and the historic Speaker ouster, K Street set their sights on behemoth must-pass packages including the farm bill, Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization and the National Defense Authorization Act as vehicles to advance their policy priorities.
Top lobbyists have also helped their clients navigate the flood of regulatory activity from the Biden administration, which has started pushing billions of dollars in funding, grants and tax credits out the door as major legislative packages— namely the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and CHIPS and Science Act — come online.
