Chairs Rodgers, Bilirakis Announce Hearing on FY 2024 Federal Trade Commission Budget
Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Innovation, Data, and Commerce Subcommittee Chair Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) today announced a hearing entitled “Fiscal Year 2024 Federal Trade Commission Budget.”
Chairs Rodgers and Bilirakis released the following statement:
“A critical responsibility of Congress is to regularly review federal agencies and act, if need be, to provide agencies with direction and guardrails that ensure transparency and accountability. This oversight hearing is long overdue. The last time the FTC appeared before the Energy & Commerce Committee was in July 2021, and Republicans argued for a number of reforms that have not been adopted. The FTC hasn’t been reauthorized since 1998 and under Chair Khan’s leadership has been operating without input from the representatives directly accountable to the American people. Since taking over, there has been a mass exodus of career staff and the resignation of every Republican Commissioner, raising serious concerns. We look forward to hearing from FTC Chairwoman Khan, and Commissioners Slaughter and Bedoya, about ensuring the agency is acting in the best interests of Americans, especially on important issues like protecting Americans from scams and fraud, as well as abuses of their data privacy and security.”
Subcommittee on Innovation, Data, and Commerce hearing titled “Fiscal Year 2024 Federal Trade Commission Budget.”
