Sens. Cruz, Hawley And Lee Introduce Proposal To Strip MLB Of Antitrust Exemptions

Republican senators introduced a proposal to strip Major League Baseball’s special immunity to antitrust laws.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) floated the bill on Monday. It came in response to the MLB’s decision to pull the All-Star Game out of Georgia in protest of the state’s recent election integrity laws.

While introducing the bill, Cruz said the league must stop “playing dishonest politics” when it comes to voters’ rights.
