Pramila Jayapal is the only Indian-American woman in the House of Representatives

Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal has been named vice chair of the Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law.

Chennai-born Jayapal, 55, from the Democratic Party, will oversee the subcommittee's urgent work on antitrust, big tech, reining in anti-competitive behaviour, helping prevent monopolistic practices, protecting a free press, and allowing innovation to thrive.

Ms Jayapal, the only Indian-American woman in the House of Representatives, has been a leading voice on the committee, where she most recently played an active role in conducting America''s first major congressional antitrust investigation in decades, a media release said.

"I am honoured to lead the House Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law at a pivotal moment in which we must write the next chapter of antitrust law," Jayapal said in a statement.

"That's how we will finally hold dominant tech platforms accountable while advocating for workers, stopping hate and misinformation, and protecting a free press," she said.
