WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) issued the following statement regarding bipartisan legislation introduced in the House of Representatives today to regulate Big Tech.
“The legislation introduced today in the House represents an important step forward in creating an innovative, digital economy that works for all Americans. In addition to updating our antitrust laws for the twenty-first century, it is vital to set clear rules of the road for big tech platforms to ensure that consumers are treated fairly and online businesses have an opportunity to innovate and thrive. I was also pleased to see a House companion to the Merger Filing Fee Modernization Act – we need to give our antitrust enforcers additional resources to enable them to take on some of the biggest companies in the world. I am encouraged by the bipartisan efforts in the House on these issues, and I look forward to continuing to work with members of the House and Senate to rein in the unfettered power of Big Tech.”
