House of Representatives Passes Big Tech Antitrust Bill

The House on Thursday passed antitrust legislation aimed at dominance of big tech companies by giving states greater power in competition cases and increasing money for federal regulators.

The bipartisan measure passed by a vote of 242-184. It was separated from more ambitious provisions aimed at reining in Meta, Google, Amazon and Apple and passed key House and Senate committees. Those proposals have languished for months, giving companies time to lobby vigorously against them.

The narrower bill would give states an advantage over businesses in choosing the location of the courts that decide federal antitrust cases. Advocates say this change would avoid the “home advantage” that big tech companies enjoy in federal courts in Northern California, where many of the cases are tried and where many of the companies are based.
