March 29, 2012
A new analysis shows pharmaceutical companies and their trade groups dropped more than $487 million on lobbying from 2009 through 2011. Biotechnology firms and their trade associations, meanwhile, spent more than $126 million on lobbying and medical device manufacturers and their trade groups paid out over $86 million for lobbying, the analysis found.

The analysis, with data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics and commissioned by the Union of Concerned Scientists, also found that these industries gave about $6.3 million in campaign contributions to 70 lawmakers serving on relevant committees.
