Freebie Friday a little slow for legislature

The Senate isn't meeting and the House agenda isn't heavy, so naturally the lobby is taking a bit of a breather from the free "scheduled activities" they've been (ab)using to continue hog slopping despite Amendment 94, which nominally banned wining and dining.

But, some activities are on the Big Swill docket.

LUNCH: 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Doe's Back Room.

That was the entirety of the House listing, but an inquiry revealed that the backroom lunch is being paid for by:

ARBEV (soft drink lobby)
AR Cable Telecommunications Assn.
AR Manufactured Housing Assn.
AR Oil Marketers Assn.
AR Optometric Assn.
