Comcast Corp., the nation's largest cable TV operator, paid Arent Fox PLLC $100,000 to lobby the federal government in the first half of 2007.

The firm lobbied the House of Representatives on issues affecting the cable industry, including rules on franchising and network neutrality. Arent Fox disclosed its work for Comcast (nasdaq: CMCSA - news - people ) in a form posted online Aug. 14 by the Senate's public records office.

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 report how much they are paid in the first six months of each year.

Comcast is based in Philadelphia.
