A report from Politico says the online retailer has hired the firm to lobby for ‘federal advocacy’ of the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and for the Marketplace Fairness Act, a potential bill dealing with the collection of sales tax.
Amazon originally announced its plans for UAV deliveries in December. It spent about $3.5 million on lobbying last year, Politico reports.
Michael Drobac, Melanie Goggins, Ed Pagano, Jennifer Richter and Greg Walden will be representing the law firm.
