Bipartisan Agreement on Google's "Problematic Practices"

The chairman and ranking member of the Senate Antitrust Subcommittee are backing efforts by the European Union to seek a settlement with Google over alleged anti-competitive behavior.

Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis. and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said they were looking forward to a voluntary settlement of Google's "problematic practices," including those raised in a September 2011 hearing of the Antitrust Subcommittee and those outlined by the EU's top antitrust regulator.

The pair also backed the continuation of the Federal Trade Commission investigation into Google, "to ensure a competitive search market where consumers can fairly pick the winners and losers in our online economy."
