WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Rubber Manufacturers Association paid Compass Consulting Group $100,000 in the second half of 2006 to lobby the federal government, according to a disclosure form. The firm lobbied on failed congressional legislation intended to educate consumers about tires and fuel efficiency, according to the form posted online Friday by the Senate's public records office. Chemtura Corp., Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and Carlisle Cos. Inc. are among the 87 companies that are members of the trade group. Under a federal law enacted in 1995, lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches. They must register with Congress within 45 days of being hired or engaging in lobbying.
