HEARING SET FOR MAY 22 ON COLLEGE BOWL ALLIANCE
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).
