Commerce Committee teeing up FTC


The FCC isn’t the only government agency getting regular grillings on Capitol Hill. The Federal Trade Commission, which occasionally gets into broadcast issues, particularly when they pertain to advertising, is booked for the Senate Commerce Committee on 4/8/08. All five commissioners are on the guest list/menu, but one of them will either be excused or will be making a farewell appearance. Chair Deborah Platt Majoras (R) has announced her intention to exit the agency. Her target date was earlier reported as late March.
