Keystone Builder Spends Over $1 Million in Lobbying Efforts

Bloomberg: “TransCanada … spent $1.05 million to lobby Congress and the administration last year, about 24 percent more than it spent in 2012.”

“TransCanada spent $260,000 on lobbying in the fourth quarter, the records show. The records don’t specify how much was spent on any issue, though the company said it lobbied on Keystone and issues related to natural gas.”

“Its chief Washington lobbyist, Paul Elliott, is a former top campaign aide Hillary Clinton, who served as secretary of State in President Barack Obama’s first term.”
