NACS Spends $655,000 Lobbying Government

The National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) spent $655,000 during the third quarter lobbying the federal government on issues related to price gouging, energy policy, credit card fees, tobacco regulation and other key business issues that impact the industry, the Associated Press reported.

This year the association also lobbied the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Energy and the Federal Reserve System, among others, according to a disclosure report file with the House clerk’s office.

The $655,000 NACS spent this quarter is up from the $620,000 NACS spent in the second quarter and the $570,000 it spent in the third quarter of last year.

NACS represents more than 2,100 retail chains and 1,600 suppliers for convenience stores.
