Here’s where anti-Big Tech legislation stands as time runs out for Congress to act

Aug 4, 2022 | Political News

Democrats seeking to rein in big business and Republicans worried about censorship have teamed up on legislation to regulate Big Tech, but the opportunity to pass technology-related legislation before the end of the term has shrunken significantly.

The fate of several technology-related bills is unclear in the few remaining months of the term after the August recess and before the midterm elections preoccupy members of Congress. Several of the bills address fears about tech companies' monopolistic control of the market or their handling of private information.

“It’s hard for me to imagine that Congress is going to go off in October to go campaign without passing at least one of those bills and at least one chamber,” Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Director of Federal Affairs India McKinney told the Washington Examiner.
