    The simple answer is that every business, cause, or interest over which govt has power has a lobbying group. The presence of power means that any CEO, or president of a nonprofit whose interests can be fundamentally altered by govt has a powerful motivation to lobby. To not lobby would be them neglecting their responsibility to their cause or shareholders.

    Anyway, here's a list of registered lobbyists for Md. And you said google doesn't giveth. Pfft.
