    FedEx spends $2.8 million lobbying in 2nd quarter - Forbes

    FedEx Corp. spent nearly $4.9 million lobbying the federal government in the second quarter on legislation that would have made it easier for its workers to unionize, among other issues, according to a disclosure report.

    That's below the more than $7 million the world's second-largest package delivery company spent in the second quarter of 2010 but above the $3.9 million it spent in the first three months of the year. The company's larger rival, Atlanta-based United Parcel Service Inc., spent about $1.1 million on lobbying in the second quarter.
