AP Reports Dow Spent 1.4 million on Lobbying Govenrment

According to a report posted by AP today, Dow Chemicals spent $1.3 million on lobbying the U.S.. government in the third quarter. 1.3 million!! That's insane! That money could be much better spend on the 200,000 people in Bhopal, India injured from the Union Carbide gas leak 25 years ago.

According to a report filed at the House Clerk's office, Dow lobbied on legislation that dealt with surface transportation reauthorization, railroad antitrust, toxic substances and chemical security, as well as on climate change, pensions and issues related to credit markets.
