The amount of money spent during the recent 2012 legislative session set a new record. According to a report from the Legislative Ethics Commission, $7 million was spent by employers and their lobbyists during the first three months of the session. That means when the final totals are in for the entire session, it's expected to top the record $8.4 million spent in 2010. We already know the lobbying arm for the big drug companies spent a record amount for one session of the Kentucky General Assembly. The Consumer Healthcare Products Association spent $457, 000 during the session dealing with the meth bill. Big drug companies managed to water down a bill that restricts the purchase of cold and allergy medicine which contain pseudoephedrine, the main ingredient in meth.
