HEARING SET FOR MAY 22 ON COLLEGE BOWL ALLIANCE
Published April 17, 1997
The U.S. Senate plans to hold hearings next month on whether the College Bowl Alliance is "a monopoly that should be broken," according to Lee Davidson of the DESERET NEWS. U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett (R-UT) is one of four senators who had "pushed" for the hearing and was "elated" that Sen. Mike DeWine (R-OH) agreed to hold a hearing before his Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust. Bennett has charged the Alliance with working to ensure "traditional powerhouses control the most lucrative bowls." In a letter to Bennett, DeWine stated "It is clear that you have raised an important issue worth serious investigation" (DESERET NEWS, 4/16).
