In partnership with NPR, St. Louis Public Radio has created a new website to keep track of all the gifts Missouri state lawmakers have been receiving from companies and organizations that have lobbyists at the capitol in Jefferson City. And, the information is searchable and downloadable. 

For example, $1,865,960 has been spent by lobbyists on 20,681 gifts. The company that spent the most money on lobbying legislators was Ameren, an energy company, followed closely by the Missouri Hospital Association.
