Warren Statement on Biden administration Naming Lina Khan Chair of the FTC

Washington, DC - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released the following statement on the Biden administration designating Lina Khan as chair of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC):

"The Biden administration's designation of Lina Khan as Chair of the Federal Trade Commission is tremendous news. Lina brings deep knowledge and expertise to this role and will be a fearless champion for consumers. Giant tech companies like Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon deserve the growing scrutiny they are facing, and consolidation is choking off competition across American industries. With Chair Khan at the helm, we have a huge opportunity to make big, structural change by reviving antitrust enforcement and fighting monopolies that threaten our economy, our society, and our democracy."
