in Uncategorized by

Ahead of Senate Democrats’ push to tackle college affordability, the University of Florida Student Government Association hired Squire Sanders to help with outreach on the Hill.

The student government was previously signed with Cardenas Partners, which lobbied for issues related to student loans and STEM funding, according to Senate lobbying records, and spent $20,000 between June 2012 and March 2014. 

At the state level, UF’s SGA is represented by Capital City Consulting.

Student government representatives did not respond to requests for comment.
