The RIAA charged $2.8 million in Congressional lobbying fees last year, according to disclosures surfacing Thursday.

The amounts, filed in compliance with federal lobbying laws, allowed the organization to push a variety of agenda points.

That includes demands for recording royalties from terrestrial broadcasters, various anti-piracy initiatives, and issues tied to internet-based radio royalties.  A total of $2.1 million was spend during the second half of the year.
