Georgia has had its fair share of national news over the last year. We had a runoff election that shocked the U.S. and finally gave Democrats control in Washington, all while our state legislature adopted restrictive voting laws that continue to spark debate nationwide. All eyes are on our state, making it critically important that our federal lawmakers show leadership in D.C.
With so many issues being considered by Congress, prioritizing our economic recovery, lessening vaccine hesitancy, setting commonsense federal standards for ballot access, and strengthening our infrastructure should be top of mind. That is why it is concerning to see some lawmakers focus on a package of antitrust legislation aimed at technology companies.
Consumers absolutely need to be protected from predatory business practice in all industries, including technology. But the truth is that technology companies are crucial to the Georgia and U.S. economies, and the coronavirus pandemic only made this more evident.
Not only that, but there are far more pressing matters ahead of our lawmakers in Washington. Georgia’s Congressional delegation must focus on what matters most —containing the virus and making sure our country comes out the pandemic stronger than ever.
