Lobbying firms also independently revealed what they received from Google to lobby for the company. The Podesta Group Inc. reports receiving $150,000 from Google and King and Spalding LLP received $80,000 for their efforts on Google's behalf.

According to the records, other firms receiving money to lobby on Google's behalf -- though not on the medical records issue -- include Dutko Worldwide ($50,000) Franklin Square Group ($50,000), McBee Strategic Consulting ($30,000), Wilmer Cutler Pickering Halle & Dorr ($10,000) and Van Ness Feldman (less than $5,000).
