Senate Antitrust Subcommittee to Hold Hearings on Minimum Resale Pricing

The Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights will hold a hearing next week on proposed legislation that would bar minimum resale pricing imposed by manufacturers.

The hearing will be held May 19 at 2:30 p.m., and is entitled: "The Discount Consumer Protection Act: Do We Need to Restore the Ban on Vertical Price Fixing?"

The House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Courts and Competition Policy held a similar hearing on April 28, titled "Bye Bye Bargains? Retail Price Fixing, the Leegin Decision, and Its Impact on Consumer Prices." Testimony from that hearing is available here.
