APP Urges House GOP to Support Forcing Vote on Big Tech Antitrust Bill

January 12, 2022

Today, American Principles Project (APP) is urging Republican members of Congress to sign on to the discharge petition introduced by Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) that provides for the consideration of the State Antitrust Enforcement Venue Act. The legislation is one of the six bipartisan antitrust bills that passed out of the House Judiciary Committee last June.

Jon Schweppe, director of policy and government affairs for APP, released the following statement:

“Nancy Pelosi, perhaps Congress’ most notorious stock trader, seems to be dragging her feet on these antitrust bills that go after some of her portfolio’s most significant holdings. Is she waiting for AAPL, FB, and GOOGL to go back to the moon? We may never know. But enough is enough — it’s been seven months. Are we going to have a debate about reining in Big Tech, or not? Are we going to have votes on these bills, or not? Kudos to Congressman Buck for forcing the issue by introducing this discharge petition. We encourage the entire Republican caucus to sign on.”
