Motorola spent $850,000 in first quarter to lobby government on taxes, health care.
Motorola Inc., the maker of cell phones and other telecommunications equipment, spent $850,000 in the first quarter to lobby the federal government on cell phone taxes, health care reform and other issues, according to a disclosure report.

That's down from the $1.47 million that Motorola spent in the year-ago period, and from the $1.07 million it spent in the fourth quarter of 2009. Motorola also lobbied the federal government on legislation involving Haiti reconstruction efforts, the importation of minerals from conflict-riven countries and police and military radio projects, according to the report filed on April 20.

In the January to March period, the Motorola lobbied Congress, the Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Transportation, according to the report filed with the House clerk's office, AP News reports.
