The half dozen pressure groups of Ramba Consulting Group received an estimated salary of $ 580,000 during the first three months of the year.
New pressure compensation reports show founder David Ramba and the team at Allison Carvajal, Paul Handerhan, Thomas Hobbs, Evan Power i Cameron Yarbrough represented four dozen customers during the first quarter.
The contracts yielded an estimated $ 550,000 profit to pressure the legislature. The firm raised another $ 30,000 by pressuring the governor and cabinet.
Florida lobbyists report their revenue for each contract at intervals covering increments of $ 10,000 to $ 50,000, after which a company must report the exact amount they received. Florida Politics uses the average number of each interval to estimate quarterly earnings.
Ramba Consulting Group had a client who broke the rank reporting limit: the Florida PACE Financing Agency. The group, which amounted to $ 60,000 between Jan. 1 and March 31, funds home upgrades under the property-assessed clean energy (or PACE) guidelines, which allow homeowners to pay the cost of housing. improvements to the property tax bill.
The second most lucrative contract came from the Florida Optometric Association, which was on the side of a major scope of the practice of food struggle during the regular session. The association paid $ 35,000 for the quarter.
The Florida Chiropractic Association, the Florida Concrete & Products Association, FWD.US and Propel Florida remained at the $ 25,000 level. Another 20 clients showed up with $ 15,000 per piece and the rest involved an estimated investment of $ 5,000 per company.
A handful of well-known companies were part of the $ 15,000 block, including AT&T, Florida Power & Light Company and Tampa Bay Downs, a thoroughbred horse track that had been pushing to include it in pari-mutuel decoupling tickets.
Ramba’s executive branch report was relatively light: it lists the same customers, but only six are marked as paid contracts. These directors: Collective Medical Technologies, Consulate of Health, Florida Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs, Florida Chiropractic Association, Florida Concrete & Products Association and Propel Florida.
The rest of the list paid $ 0 for pressure from the executive branch last quarter.
In addition to intervals per customer, clearing reports indicate the overall payment ranges for the quarter. The Ramba Consulting Group legislative report shows profits of between $ 500,000 and $ 1 million; the executive report shows between $ 1 and $ 50,000 in earnings.
If the firm got the best dollars from each client, it would have earned $ 790,000, all for $ 50,000 of those listed on the legislative side of the general ledger.
The average and total maximum gains are a step beyond the firm’s quarterly earnings last year. The second quarter of 2020 – the last time Florida Politics checked the company’s profits – posted a median of $ 460,000 with a maximum of $ 550,000.
Florida lobbyists and lobbyists faced a deadline of May 15 to deliver compensation reports ranging from Jan. 1 to March 31. Second-quarter compensation reports must be filed with the state on August 14th.
