Marcellus Shale enriches Albany lobbyists
|Groups that lobbied on a pair of bills that would have placed a statewide moratorium on hydraulic fracturing spent about $3.6 million in Albany last year, according to a good-government group.|
Those opposing the bills spent $2.87 million, while organizations in support of the legislation spent $725,643 in 2010, Common Cause/NY wrote in the latest version of an ongoing report, released Thursday.
The report analyzed two years' worth of lobbying reports, though many of the groups mentioned — such as the state Business Council and Environmental Advocates of New York — lobbied on a number of bills and topics in addition to the moratoriums.
Common Cause itself spent about $50,000 on lobbying in 2010 and supported the moratorium bills.
