§ 1644. Antitrust exemption
The activities of independent direct support providers and their exclusive representative that are necessary for the exercise of their rights under this chapter shall be afforded State action immunity under applicable federal and State antitrust laws. The State intends that the “State action” exemption to federal antitrust laws be available only to the State, to independent direct support providers, and to their exclusive representative in connection with these necessary activities. Exempt activities shall be actively supervised by the State. (Added 2013, No. 48, § 1, eff. May 24, 2013.)
