CEA Spent $440,000 on Lobbyists in Q3
The Consumer Electronics Association spent $440,000 on lobbying expenditures in the third quarter of this year, with the bulk of the lobbying taking place on energy efficiency and recycling issues as well as trade. That's according to the Associated Press, which cited federal disclosure forms filed last week.
Other issues taken up by the industry association included business visas, export issues, counterfeiting and copyright protection. In addition to Congress, CEA also lobbied the Departments of Commerce and State, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Security Council, the U.S. Trade Representative, the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission.
