TI spends $480,000 lobbying in second quarter
WASHINGTON — Chip maker Texas Instruments Inc. spent $480,000 in the second quarter to lobby the federal government on corporate taxes, immigration of skilled workers and other issues, according to a disclosure report.
That was down slightly from the $490,000 that TI spent in the same period a year ago, and more than the $320,000 it spent in the first quarter of 2010.
The Dallas-based company also lobbied the federal government on legislation involving nanotechnology research and export restrictions on high technology, among other issues, according to the company’s report, filed with the House clerk’s office.
In the April to June period, TI lobbied Congress, the White House, the Commerce Department, the State Department and the National Security Council.
