Ratner Lobbying Effort Hits $2 million

Lobbying the New York state legislature on behalf of the Nets' new arena cost Bruce Ratner more than $2 million last year, according to new records released by the state lobbying commission. Forest City Ratner paid out $2.1 million to eight lobbying firms. The figure puts the Nets owner at No. 3 on the list of top lobbyists, ahead of the Yankees, who are also looking for state help in putting up new digs.
