WASHINGTON — The American Hotel & Lodging Association spent $305,000 in the first quarter lobbying federal officials on travel to Cuba, labor and other issues, according to a recent disclosure report.
That's less than the $350,000 the group spent lobbying both in the same period last year and in 2009's fourth quarter.
The trade group, which represents hotel companies, also lobbied the federal government on family medical leave and health insurance for small businesses in January through March.
The trade group lobbied both houses of Congress and the Departments of Labor, Commerce and Homeland Security, according to a disclosure report it filed April 19 with the House clerk's office.
