Sacramento Bee

A former Assembly majority leader has joined one of Sacramento’s top lobbying shops. Former Democratic Assemblyman Alberto Torrico is working as an “of-counsel” attorney for Capitol Advocacy, the firm confirmed today. It said in a statement that Torrico, who is not a registered lobbyist, will “provide Capitol Advocacy and its clients with strategic advice on political and policy issues.” The Sacramento-based firm, which represents major Capitol players such as the California Retailers Association, the California Hospital Association and Chevron, ranked No. 5 in California lobbying firm revenues in the first three quarters of 2011.
