Cable group spent $3.93 million lobbying in 2Q

The National Cable and Telecommunications Association, the lobbying arm for cable and satellite video providers, spent $3.93 million in the second quarter to lobby the federal government on wide range of issues including online privacy and the spread of broadband Internet access, according to a disclosure report.

That's up from the $3.51 million that the group spent in the year-ago period, and more than the $3.92 million it spent in the first quarter of 2010. The association also lobbied the federal government on capturing online predators.

In the April-to-June period, the association lobbied Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and other agencies, according to the report filed July 20 with the House clerk's office.

Jill Luckett, who worked as legislative director for former Sen. Bob Packwood, R-Ore., is among those registered to lobby for the association.

It's easy to define what you're willing to fight for; but what are you willing to stand for without fighting? What are you willing to lay down your life for? This member is a Regular Member.
