Owens Joins Freedom from Big Tech Caucus

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) joined the Freedom from Big Tech Caucus to unite members of Congress in bipartisan efforts to rein in Big Tech’s anti-competitive and monopolistic practices.

“Momentum is building in the bipartisan push to take on Big Tech’s anti-competitive, unregulated monopoly behavior that undermines fair competition for small businesses. I’m proud to join Rep. Buck and Rep. Gooden in their mission to educate and inform American consumers and look forward to developing long-lasting solutions that support innovation and free-market solutions,” said Rep. Owens.

Through legislation, education, and awareness, the Freedom from Big Tech Caucus will:

  • Restore the free and dynamic digital economy
  • Promote competition and innovation
  • Protect children from harmful content online
  • Support small businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs
  • Protect privacy and data rights
  • End political censorship
  • Counter Big Tech’s courtship of the Chinese Communist Party

Last month, Rep. Owens introduced the bipartisan Augmenting Compatibility and Competition by Enabling Service Switching (ACCESS) Act to promote competition online by lowering barriers to entry and switching costs for businesses and consumers through interoperability and data portability requirements. H.R.3849 passed the House Judiciary Committee on June 23.
