Technology giants, Amazon and Google have spent $ 35 million to put pressure on Washington.

The Times said in a report on its website, Friday, that Amazon exerted pressure on 40 branches of the US government, last year, more than any other US company.

Amazon spent $ 14.2 million on pressure operations across political areas including food, transportation, immigration, agriculture, defense and health care, compared with $ 12.8 million in 2017. Since 2012, Amazon has increased its pressure spending by 460%, according to Bloomberg.

Google spent more in the past year with $ 21 million in funds. The data compiled by the Axis Policy Center show that Amazon has put pressure on 21 public issues, including labeling genetically modified foods, cars and self-propelled aircraft.
