Microsoft heavily funding ‘small business’ lobby | The Center for Public Integrity

A “small business” technology trade group that’s aggressively pressing Congress to ease key immigration laws is heavily funded by one of the world’s wealthiest corporations, according to a Center for Public Integrity review of company disclosures.

Software giant Microsoft Corp. gave the nonprofit Association for Competitive Technology nearly $2.5 million between July 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012, corporate documents indicate.

Microsoft also gave at least $1 million to ACT during the company’s 2009, 2010 and 2011 fiscal years — although it did not disclose the specific payment amounts.
