Public records indicate that South Dakota requires individual lobbyists to register, rather than lobbying firms.
The homepage map shows the number of individual tobacco industry lobbyist registrations (the totals from the blue rows in each chart below). Because the same individual lobbyist may represent more than one tobacco company, the data are separated by total number of lobbyists and total number of registrations.
The tan rows show the number of individual lobbyists. The tan box at the top shows the combined total number of individual lobbyists.
The blue rows show the total number of lobbyist registrations. The blue box at the top shows the combined total number of registrations for lobbyists. When the same lobbyist represents more than one tobacco company, this blue number will be higher than the tan number.
