Tim Cook discreetly met with senior leaders in Congress from both parties last Tuesday to offer introductions and open up Congressional access to Apple, CNN Money reports. While Apple has traditionally eschewed major lobbying efforts — its spent just 23% of what Google spent on lawmakers in 2011, despite its deep cash reserves — Cook’s leadership style suggests that the company may become more involved in policy matters than it had been under Steve Jobs. Apple may also have incentive to develop closer ties with lawmakers considering that it has fell under increasing government scrutiny in recent months over a number of issues, including iOS privacy concerns and its alleged ebook price-fixing scheme.
