NPR Researching Health Lobbyists and Their Influence

Today National Public Ratio began a new series discussing the lobbyists in the room during health reform debates. 

Earlier this month, lobbyists trooped in to watch as the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions began working on a health-care overhaul — the first congressional panel this year to move so far.

As the lobbyists watched the 22 senators, NPR watched the lobbyists — took panoramic photos of them, in fact. After all, congressional committee meetings like this one are public events.

We wanted to know how many lobbyists go to these important sessions, what they hope to influence and, most basically, who they are. We've already begun to identify them; you can see the panoramic shot by clicking on the image at left. . .

NPR is asking for some help identifying these lobbyists.  If you check out the photos on their website and know the players, you may want to provide them with some information.
