Competition: State Legislation

As states continue to tackle issues that are traditionally addressed at the federal level, CCIA has seen states target competition policy in two primary areas: (i) revisions to antitrust laws and (ii) regulation of app stores. It is important for states to consider several factors as lawmakers engage on these topics. For each of these competition areas, if states adopt an increasing patchwork of laws, businesses will face difficulties navigating conflicting and disparate requirements, which could ultimately result in barriers to innovation and investment.
