Personal Care group spent $190K lobbying in 2Q
WASHINGTON — The Personal Care Products Council, whose members include Dial Corp., Unilever and hundreds of other companies, spent $190,000 in the second quarter to lobby the government on the regulation of cosmetics and chemicals, according to a recent disclosure report.
That’s less than the $220,000 it spent in the same period a year earlier but more than the $140,000 it spent in the first quarter of 2010.
The group lobbied both houses of Congress and the Food and Drug Administration from April through June, according to the report filed July 20 with the House clerk’s office.
