(AP) The European Union says Google has submitted new proposals to address the concerns of the bloc's antitrust watchdog.

Google's new attempt to overcome fears it is stifling competition in European Internet searches comes two months after the watchdog rejected the company's proposals as insufficient.

The EU's executive arm, the Commission, said Monday it has received a new proposal from Google and is assessing it, while declining to elaborate.

EU antitrust chief Joaquin Almunia said over the weekend a decision based on the proposals could be made in the coming months.

The Commission has been investigating for three years whether Google Inc. is abusing its 90 percent market share in Europe to favor its own services. Google is looking to address those concerns mainly by changing how it displays search results.
