Georgia is another state to enact criminal provisions against conspiracy in restraint of free and open competition. The legislation closely mirrors the federal antitrust statutes, and prohibits any agreement or conspiracy to reduce or eliminate market competition. A state statute like this one enables state investigative authorities to combat anticompetitive practices within their state without having to defer to federal prosecutors. A state charge of antitrust violation can be brought at the same time as a federal charge.
