The Alley has been monitoring how K Street is getting ready for the lame duck and today we bring you a look at how top unions are preparing, including how much they spent in the third quarter on lobbying:

--The AFL-CIO spent $840,000 on lobbying a long list of items, such as the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. It also had six lobbyists working on budget issues that included the Budget Control Act.

-- The American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees spent $670,000 on lobbying, including work on sequester and deficit issues in the Clean Ports Act and the National Security and Job Protection Act.

-- The Service Employees International Union spent $210,000 lobbying, a sum that included paying four lobbyists to work on budget issues such as the Budget Control Act and the House STEM bill.
