Lobbyists spent big money this year in Frankfort.
New numbers from the Kentucky Legislative Ethics Commission show lobbyists spent $8.9 million during this past General Assembly Session.
And the Consumer Healthcare Products Association was the biggest single spender at $486,000.
That came at a time when the General Assembly was considering a bill to limit over-the-counter sales of pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in making meth.
The drug industry opposed the legislation.
Eventually, a bill was passed.
But the final version was weaker than the original bill.
