Amazon became Washington's fastest growing tech lobbyist in 2015, according to the New York Times. The biggest lobbying push is in the drone space, with Amazon vying to get drone delivery off the ground – pun intended – while others aim to keep them grounded. Amazon spent $9.4 million on lobbying in 2015, nearly doubling its 2014 spending. This includes money spent on easing regulations on drone use, as well as better roads, bigger delivery trucks and a stronger relationship with the U.S. Postal Service.
