US: Coors spends US$500,000 on Government lobbying
Coors Brewing Co. spent US$500,000 on lobbying the US government in the first half of this year, according to a recent filing.
The US arm of Molson Coors spent the money lobbying Congress on alcohol advertising, farm legislation affecting barley growers, product labelling, drunk driving policies, energy policy taxes and state-level alcohol regulations. The declaration was made in a disclosure form posted online last month.
US trade body The Beer Institute, of which Coors is also a member, said last month that it had lobbied the US government to the tune of $310,000 in the first half of 2007.
Since 1995, under federal law, lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches and report the financial sum of any lobbying during the first six months of each year.
