How a Bill Becomes Law: Dominion Hands $10,000 to Duff for a Local Favorite.

You’re right to feel uncomfortable. Dominion Resources is pushing hard to win approval of legislation to broaden its access to energy markets in the complicated and regulated world of energy generation. On May 1st, the chief lobbyist for Dominion made his way to Norwalk to present a $10,000 check to state Senator Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) for his hometown’s Maritime Aquarium. Duff was delighted, as you can see in this Facebook post. Dominion lobbyist Kevin Hennessey is doing the handover. Not very subtle. And that’s how a bill’s chances of becoming a law get better and better.

They usually aren’t so bold, but social media has changed many ways business is done.

UPDATE: A Dominion representative adds that the company has made an annual contribution to Maritime Aquarium several times in recent years.
