AJR 24 – California

Status: Inactive / Dead
Year Introduced: 2019
Link: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AJR24

This measure would commend the United States House of Representatives’ Committee on the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law on its decision to investigate antitrust issues. The measure would also urge the Federal Trade Commission, the United States Department of Justice, and the Congress of the United States to revisit federal antitrust law so that price increases are not the primary criterion used to determine whether or not a potentially monopolistic act harms consumers. The measure would respectfully request the California Attorney General to monitor closely the work of both the aforementioned subcommittee and federal law enforcement, use best efforts to obtain evidence gathered by them, and provide the Legislature and the Governor with evidence that may have become available before January 1, 2020, and to also work closely with other state attorneys general to determine legal actions the State of California and other states may take to curb the monopolistic powers of giant technology companies.
