(Associated Press) The American Gaming Association spent nearly $430,000 in the first quarter lobbying federal officials about online gambling regulation and enforcement and other issues, according to a recent disclosure report.
That's more than the $376,000 it spent a year earlier and more than the $345,000 the group spent lobbying in the fourth quarter of 2009.
The Washington, D.C., industry group for commercial casino companies lobbied only Congress in January through, according to the form filed with the House on April 14.
The association's members include Las Vegas Sands Corp., MGM Mirage, Boyd Gaming Corp., International Game Technology, Harrah's Entertainment Inc., Bally Technologies Inc. and other casino operators and gambling equipment companies.
