Rep. Fitzgerald (R-WI) Introduces Fair and Balanced FTC Act

Representative Scott Fitzgerald (R-WI) introduced the Fair and Balanced FTC Act (HR 3692) to prohibit the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) from acting unless there is at least one FTC Commissioner from a different party from the Chair. This would incentivize the President to nominate and confirm Commissioners to ensure a functioning body including minority Commissioners to provide feedback and dissent on harmful FTC actions.
