'Company pages' provide new portals into MapLight's data and research, allowing citizens and journalists to view with ease the web of influence in U.S. Congress and the California and Wisconsin Legislatures. Our Company pages profile top contributing companies and organizations, ranking them according to total contributions they've made, bill positions they've taken, and bills on which they've gotten their way. For example, they reveal that with over $6 million in contributions, the American Bankers Association is the #5 contributor to members of Congress and is #9 in having bills decided in its favor. Our Company pages also show which legislators have received the most contributions from an organization.
