Description: Consumer Reports sent a letter to Members of the Judiciary Committee, which was scheduled to vote on a package of bills designed to address the market power of large online platforms by strengthening marketplace rules to protect competition and consumers. Among other things, these bills would help create sound and effective market rules to promote interoperability and non-discrimination, and they would shift the burden of proof so large online platforms have to demonstrate how acquisitions will help competition emerge and grow. And large platforms would have to operate consistently with a duty of care for consumers. CR has been calling for these reforms, and urged the Committee to approve the bills. The Committee approved them in a markup session June 23 and 24.
