WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar issued the following statement on President Biden’s announcement that he intends to nominate Lina Khan to the Federal Trade Commission:

“We need all hands on deck as we work to take on some of the biggest monopolies in the world, and President Biden is making his commitment to competition policy clear.
