U.S. PIRG Supports Confirmation of Professor Lina Khan to FTC

Letter Supporting President Biden's Nominee
Last updated: 4/21/2021

U.S. PIRG supports President Biden's nomination of Professor Lina Khan to join the Federal Trade Commission. Our letter to the Senate Commerce Commitee describing her strong qualifications can be downloaded from this page. Excerpt:

"We believe Ms. Khan’s expertise and experience as a leading voice in antitrust will be a great asset to the FTC at this critical moment. Lina Khan’s leadership and rigor as an investigator was evidenced in the groundbreaking, bipartisan House Judiciary inquiry into Big Tech competition and monopoly issues. From companies undermining our ability to fix our own devices, to undermining competition in the digital marketplace, to overly-consolidated firms undermining farmers and producers, we know we have problems to fix in terms of competition and antitrust. We believe Ms. Khan is willing and capable to hold Big Tech accountable, delivering results for farmers, consumers and nascent competitors who are being squeezed by overly concentrated markets."
