Lilly, other corporations step up giving to Democrats

April 23, 2007

Businesses, including Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly and Co., have poured $1.7 million into coffers of chairmen of U.S. House of Representative committees since the start of the year.

That’s nearly twice as much as corporations gave when Republicans controlled the House during the same stretch of 2005, according to Bloomberg.

Interests including pharmaceutical makers, like Lilly, oil refiners and others fear the House will pass regulations that could hurt their profits.
