Background: This evening, the Senate confirmed all five of the Trump administration’s FTC nominees.
The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, President & CEO, USTelecom:
“This evening’s confirmations are good news for American consumers. With a full slate of Commissioners now at the FTC, the nation’s leading consumer protection agency is fully staffed to exert well-defined enforcement authority across the entire internet – from net neutrality to privacy. We look forward to working with the agency to advance a privacy framework that establishes strong protections for consumer data while promoting industry competition.”
