A spokesman for a Lobbyist group said it is planning an event to honor state legislators at a National Guard building in Jefferson City. When asked about whether or not it was ok for lobbyists to use a government funded facility for an honorary dinner, event spokesman Jim Foley said the volunteer group is merely doing a good deed.
