Undecided lawmakers are facing a barrage of lobbying from Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Amazon Inc., tech trade groups and progressive advocates ahead of a planned vote later this month on antitrust legislation to rein in the largest tech platforms. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has pledged a floor vote this month on legislation sponsored by Senators Amy Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat, and Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, to prohibit companies like Apple Inc., Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc. from favoring their own products.
