December 13, 2011 () – DuPont spent $1.2M in the 3Q to lobby on topics from chemical regulation to childhood obesity

Du Pont Co. spent $1.21 million in the third quarter to lobby the government on a range of issues from chemical regulation to childhood obesity, according to a disclosure report.

That's the same amount the Wilmington, Del., chemical manufacturer spent a year earlier and in the second quarter, according to quarterly disclosure reports it has filed with the House clerk's office.

From July to September, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co. discussed several issues including competition in agriculture, nutrition laws, chemicals used on crops, climate change, taxes and trade. Other topics included child obesity, appropriations for some federal agencies, international chemical regulations and energy efficiency. The company also discussed security for chemical facilities, trade and rail competition.

In addition to both houses of Congress, du Pont lobbied the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the Executive Office of the President and other federal agencies, according to its Oct. 20 report.
