WASHINGTON (AP) — Northrop Grumman Corp. spent $2.81 million in the third quarter to lobby the federal government, according to a recent disclosure report.
The defense company lobbied on homeland security spending, cyber security issues, research and development tax credits and other business issues in July through September.
The spending was down slightly from the $3.02 million the company spent a year earlier and the $2.97 million it spent during the second quarter this year, according to reports it has filed with the House clerk's office.
Defense contractors like Northrop Grumman are facing the prospect of decreasing revenue resulting from federal budget cuts. The company lobbied Congress and the Department of Defense about appropriations and budget issues.
The company lobbied Congress, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies, according to a report it filed Oct. 20.
