CORNING, N.Y. — Specialty glass maker Corning Inc., which makes glass monitors for televisions, smartphones and tablet computers, spent $170,000 in the third quarter lobbying the federal government on market access to China and other issues, according to a disclosure report.

That's down from the $270,000 it spent in the same period last year and the $240,000 it spent in the second quarter of 2011.

Corning also lobbied the government to suspend duties on laboratory glass and textured rolled glass sheets and about tax, trade and pollution regulations, according to the report the company filed on Oct. 18 with the House clerk's office.

In the July-September period, Corning lobbied Congress and the U.S. Trade Representative, according to the report.
