This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on February 3, 2022. From the Document: "Under current law, antitrust suits that are filed in more than one federal court district may be transferred and consolidated in a single venue at the request of a litigant or the initiative of judiciary officials. Antitrust suits brought by federal law enforcement agencies are exempt. S. 1787 would exempt from transfer and consolidation antitrust cases brought by state attorneys general, allowing those cases to remain in the court district in which they were filed. Over the 2016-2020 period, state attorneys general brought, on average, 10 antitrust suits per year in federal courts; few, if any, were consolidated."
