Senate Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee Chair

(D-Minn.) touted Khan’s knowledge of competition policy as lawmakers look to revamp antitrust policy. 

“We need all hands on deck as we take on some of the biggest monopolies in the world. Lina Khan’s deep understanding of competition policy will be vital as we strengthen antitrust enforcement, and I look forward to working with her at the FTC as we advance efforts to protect consumers,” Klobuchar said in a statement.

Her confirmation to the FTC comes as lawmakers are pushing forward with proposals that seek to rein in the power of the top tech companies. 

Senators from both sides of the aisle have proposed bills that target tech giants’ market power, and a House antitrust panel last week unveiled a bipartisan agenda with bills that give regulators greater authority to rein in the companies’ power.
