Pennsylvania House District 38
Representative Pisciottano introduced the Stop Price Fixing Act, which is designed to give the attorney general the necessary tools to enforce existing price-fixing laws. Additionally, the bill would shield whistleblowers and encourage those with internal knowledge of price-fixing violations to come forward.
He is also a co-sponsor of the Pennsylvania Open Markets Act, which is aimed at reducing the number of price-gouging monopolies by giving the attorney general more power to investigate and prosecute antitrust violations.
From Representative Nick Pisciottano:
“When a few corporations control the supply and demand of entire industries, it creates an unfair, anti-competitive marketplace, allowing the powerful few to control supply, demand, pricing, and more to pad their bottom line. Across the nation, working families are taken advantage of every day by over-concentrated industries across the American economy, while the corporate monopolies are reporting record profits. We don't need to accept this status quo any longer and can pass legislation that fosters competition as the bedrock of our economy while protecting consumers and workers from corporate profiteering.”
