Multi-client lobbyists are often described as “gatekeepers” to state officials because of their personal relationships and broad range of expertise. State lobbying laws prohibit these multi-client lobbyists from lobbying on both sides of a particular piece of legislation or other governmental action, but nothing prohibits a fossil fuel lobbyist from also working for a company or an organization that is being negatively impacted by the climate crisis.

Research by F Minus reveals a political landscape in which victims of the crisis and advocates for Net Zero and other climate goals routinely hire lobbyists who are promoting further dependence on fossil fuels on behalf of their other clients.
