GM adds slew of outside lobbyists amid electric vehicle push

General Motors has made five additions to its roster of outside lobbying firms that will work on topics including electric vehicles.

Why it matters: Big companies are positioning themselves to influence policy and legislation as Democrats wield expanded power, but Republicans also hold lots of sway in the narrowly divided Congress.

Driving the news: Newly public filings under the Lobbying Disclosure Act show these firms began working for GM last month on a wide array of matters.

Of note: Ricchetti Inc.'s head Jeff Ricchetti is the brother of White House counselor Steve Ricchetti, a closer adviser to President Biden.

What they're saying: Asked about the suite of new hirings, GM spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan tells Axios:

  • "We evaluate our consultants on an annual basis to ensure we are well positioned to advocate for policies that support our customers, dealers and employees, help strengthen our manufacturing presence in the United States and advance our vision of a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion."

The big picture: There's frequent churn in various companies' outside lobbying rosters, especially during power transitions, so we'll be watching automakers and other interests. E&E News noted this month that "A bevy of clean energy companies has registered to lobby the federal government in recent months."

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
