Senators urge regulator to take a hard look at Google’s search tactics
Sens. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), the top lawmakers on the Judiciary Committee’s antitrust subpanel, are urging Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chairman Jon Leibowitz to take a hard look at whether Google is engaging in anticompetitive business practices.
The lawmakers said their Sept. 21 hearing on Google left them with concerns that “warrant a thorough investigation by the FTC.”
The FTC has acknowledged it is probing the Web giant.
