According to this Gamasutra report, ESA spent $1 million lobbying Capitol Hill in the third quarter.

From the piece:

In the period from July to September 2008, the industry trade group spent $980,000 on direct efforts and an additional $110,000 for the services of two lobbying firms.

Although the $1,090,000 figure appears higher than last quarter’s widely-reported $980,000, it’s actually a decline of $27,500 — because last quarter’s numbers failed to include similar spending on lobbying firms working on the ESA’s behalf, to the tune of an additional $137,500.
