“This investigation is critical,” Attorney General Tong told the press. “We want to make sure that Connecticut can be a place for tech entrepreneurship.”
Tong went on to say something that the investigation is looking into, “How is Google‘s power built into the price of the goods that you buy? And if it is built into the price. The question is how it uses that power, clearly monopoly power, and if it discriminates against consumers, Connecticut residents, families, and Connecticut businesses.”
Connecticut joins a coalition of 50 Attorney Generals across the country: 48 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico. California and Alabama are the only two states not involved in the investigation.
