WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection Subcommittee Chairman Bob Latta (R-OH) released the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced joint consumer protection efforts.

“As the FCC prepares to rightfully restore internet freedom with Title I internet rules, it’s good to know that these powerful commissions are working together to protect consumers from any unfair or anticompetitive practices. The FTC has successfully provided those essential protections for decades, and we are confident they will continue to do so. Today’s announcement from the FTC and FCC is a positive move for consumers and the internet ecosystem,” said Walden, Blackburn, and Latta.
