Economic Liberties Applauds Indiana Anti-Monopoly Bills
Washington, D.C. — In response to the introduction of several important pieces of anti-monopoly legislation in Indiana, the American Economic Liberties Project released the following statement.
“We’re thrilled to see a suite of bills introduced in Indiana that would address key ways dominant corporations build power at the state and local level,” said Pat Garofalo, Director of State and Local Policy at the American Economic Liberties Project. “If they became law, these measures would set new standards for state leaders seeking to reduce corporate power. We hope they are passed through the legislature quickly.”
“In particular, Rep. Robb Greene’s legislation to ban secret corporate subsidy deals, ban massive retailers like Amazon from accessing public dollars to build warehouses, and capping predatory delivery app fees, would provide workers, local businesses, and taxpayers with vital new protections,” Garofalo added. “We’re also encouraged by the bill to ban noncompete agreements for physicians. States have a key role to play in ensuring those anticompetitive contracts are eliminated across the economy so that workers aren’t unfairly denied the freedom to find a new job.”
