The significant Congressional hearing on competition in the U.S. tech industry was postponed two days to Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee supported on Saturday.

The antitrust hearing — place to comprise Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google CEO Sundar Pichai — was initially scheduled for Monday but was postponed because of it inconsistent with the memorial service for the late Rep. John Lewis, since CNBC mentioned previously.  The House Judiciary Committee along with the Antitrust Subcommittee supported the transfer in a postponement recorded on the subcomittee’s site.

In nature, lawmakers plan the hearing to be the culmination of an elongated investigation into the four tech giants. Members of Congress expect to issue a report on the outcomes of the investigation following the hearing, resulting in legislative proposals which aim to upgrade antitrust legislation for the digital age.

The hearing has been scheduled to start at noon ET on Wednesday, July 29.
