Direct Marketing Assn spent $250K lobbying in 2Q
WASHINGTON — The Direct Marketing Association Inc., a global lobbying vehicle for marketers, spent $250,000 lobbying the government in the second quarter, according to a recent disclosure form.
That’s even with what the group spent in the first quarter of 2010 and in the year-ago period.
The New York-based association lobbied on issues related to data breach notification, automatic telemarketing, Wall Street reform and consumer protection, among other issues.
Besides Congress, the group lobbied the U.S. Postal Service, Federal Communications Commission and Federal Trade Commission in the April-June period, according to the report filed July 19 with the House clerk’s office.
