Washington Post: Google for the first time outspent every other company to influence Washington in 2017

Washington Post: Google for the first time outspent every other company to influence Washington in 2017. “All told, the search giant broke its own record by allocating more than $18 million to lobby Congress, federal agencies and the White House on issues such as immigration, tax reform, and antitrust. It also spent money to weigh in on an effort by lawmakers and regulators to regulate online advertising, which is at the core of Google’s business, according to disclosures filed to the Senate Office of Public Records.”
