Biden's FTC Nominee Confirmed

The long wait to complete the Democratic Majority on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) ended Wednesday, with the Senate Voting along Party lines to Confirm Privacy Expert, Alvaro Bedoya, to the Fifth and Final Seat. Vice President Harris (D) casting the Tie-Breaking 51st Vote.

“With the FTC at full membership, this important agency will be empowered to drive full steam ahead in cracking down on bad actor companies who are using anticompetitive practices, inflation, and price manipulation to bilk consumers and drive up profits,” Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said in a statement.

Bedoya’s Confirmation will break a 2-2 Deadlock that has limited the FTC since the beginning of Biden’s term.
