Conservative groups press for votes on three anti-Big Tech bills

Jul 21, 2022 | Political News

A coalition of conservative organizations is calling on Congress to vote for three antitrust bills in hopes of reining in Big Tech companies.

The coalition, led by the Internet Accountability Project, called in a Thursday letter for Congress to vote in favor of the American Innovation and Choice Online Act, Open App Markets Act, and State Antitrust Enforcement Venue Act.

“Anticompetitive behavior by these trillion-dollar companies has wide-ranging and devastating consequences for small businesses and the American public at large,” the letter reads. “As the digital application marketplace has become dominated by just a few giant corporations, smaller companies who attempt to compete with their products are completely at their mercy. As we have seen, these behemoths can quickly join forces to effectively eliminate their competition by removing them from their platforms and cutting them off from their audiences.”
