THIS TOWN — There's a special interest for everything. Even inefficient means of disseminating information.
The Washington Post's Lisa Rein reports:
"As the Obama administration pushes to do more business over the Internet, finally seeking to close the technology gap with the private sector, the digital makeover is running into a dogged opponent called Consumers for Paper Options.
"The group is working the halls of Congress in closed-door meetings, underwriting research favorable to its position and mounting a news media campaign in an effort to preserve Washington as the capital of paper -- and slow the move away from printed checks, forms and other paper communication."

In 2012, I wrote about the paper lobby and the metals lobby fighting over the dollar coin.
