(Reuters) - Google Inc boosted its spending to lobby the U.S. government by 54 percent in the second quarter, as the world's No.1 Internet search engine faces an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.
Google's total federal lobbying spending during the quarter jumped to $2.06 million compared with $1.48 million in the first quarter and $1.34 million in the year-earlier period, according to documents filed by the company late on Wednesday.
