JEFFERSON CITY - With an army of lobbyists and a barrage of television ads, AT&T and the cable television industry are locked in a legislative slugfest that could have a lasting effect on cable rates and service in the state of Missouri. The dispute flared up earlier this month when state legislators began debating a bill to abolish the system of local government franchise agreements, which require cable operators to sign service contracts with city and county governments.

Interest Groups Strive to Influence Views on Issue

Whatever you believe about Social Security, chances are there's somebody working hard to change your mind. For more than two decades, interest groups have employed think tanks to wage a multimillion-dollar fight for public opinion. Using a combination of Capitol Hill briefings and forums, public seminars, position papers, policy briefs, books, Web sites, polls, focus groups, advertisements and media appearances, the think tanks are defining the Social Security debate in Washington, on Main Street and in the nation's media.
