Ex-LA joins boss at Nevada lobbying firm

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on March 16, 2017

Former Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.), now president of RedRock Strategies, has brought his former senior legislative assistant on board with the Las Vegas-based lobbying firm.

Michael Lisowski, who had worked for Heck since 2013, is handling the lobbying firm's first federal lobbying client, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, on the proposed BEST Practices Act, which would phase out animal-based military training.

PETA restarted its formal lobbying activity in 2016 after a 12-year break. RedRock is the animal advocacy group's first hired lobbying firm in that time.
