WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House lawmakers plan to hold a March 12 hearing to review a proposed $26 billion merger of T-Mobile US Inc and Sprint Corp with the telecommunications companies’ chief executives, according to a congressional statement on Wednesday.

A House of Representatives Judiciary subcommittee will examine “examine the potential impact of the proposed merger of Sprint and T-Mobile on consumers, workers and the Internet,” it said.
