US: Anheuser-Busch puts $1.6M into US lobbying
Anheuser-Busch lobbied the federal government on US trade legislation to the tune of US$1.6m in the first six months of this year, according to public records.
The company spent money on lobbying US trade legislation, as well as legislation on alcohol advertising and marketing, according to the form posted online on 13 August by the Senate's public records office.
The company also lobbied the White House, Federal Trade Commission, Department of Health and Human Services, State Department, Treasury Department and Environmental Protection Agency.
Under a federal law enacted in 1995, lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches. They must register with Congress within 45 days of being hired or engaging in lobbying.
