Key Role Expected to Go to Tech Antitrust Reform Opponent Lou Correa as Top Contender

Lou Correa, tech antitrust reform opponent, top contender for key role

California Congressman Lou Correa has been touted as the frontrunner to replace David Cicilline as the highest ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust. Cicilline previously announced his intention to leave Congress effective June 1 and Correa is in the perfect position to take over due to his seniority. However, Correa’s appointment would represent a significant departure from the committee’s previous focus on antitrust issues. In recent years, the committee conducted investigations into Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google, ultimately finding that each company maintained a monopoly power. CEO’s from each of the tech giants faced hours of questioning before the panel. Under Cicilline, the Judiciary Committee passed a package of antitrust bills that aimed to curb the power of the industry’s top players. If appointed to the role, Correa, who has previously opposed similar bills to crack down on the tech industry, is expected to take a different approach.

Top Contender for a Key Role: Lou Correa, Advocate Against Tech Antitrust Reform

Rep. Lou Correa (D-CA) is reportedly the leading contender for the top Democratic seat on the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust, following the departure of former Ranking Member David Cicilline, D-R.I. If Correa takes on the role, it will represent a significant shift in attitude from the subcommittee that recently led a massive investigation into Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook, which found each company maintained monopoly power. However, under Cicilline, the Judiciary Committee managed to pass a package of antitrust bills designed to rein in the power of tech companies. Correa, who has received endorsements from the Chamber of Commerce and has opposed efforts to crack down on the tech industry, is unlikely to be a popular choice among progressive groups. Although Correa’s team has discussed priorities with Judiciary staff, a vote has not yet been scheduled.
