Interhab, which represents 40 organizations providing services to the disabled, was the leader in reported spending in January.
It reported spending $111,000 on media advertising. It had a campaign to publicize the needs of developmentally disabled Kansans who are on a waiting list for in-home services.
That campaign included billboards and radio and television advertising.
Lobbyists reported spending $352,000 to influence the Legislature. That's 41 percent more than the $249,000 spent by lobbyists in January 2008.
And last year was a record year, with lobbyists reporting more than $1.3 million in spending.
