Tremors from the management shake-up at Citigroup Inc. were felt here Tuesday as 40% of its Washington office - including five lobbyists - was laid off.

Citigroup, formed by the controversial Oct. 8 merger of Citicorp and Travelers Group, laid off 12 of its 29 employees here as part of a cost- cutting plan, a company spokesman said. That included reducing to 10, from 15, its number of lobbyists, he said. Responsibility for the $700 billion- asset company's Washington office will be shared by Gregory J. Koczanski and Roger N. Levy, Citicorp's and Travelers' lead lobbyists, respectively.
