Statement In Support Of Rebecca Slaughter Ahead Of Senate Commerce Committee Vote

Washington, DC – Internet Association President & CEO Michael Beckerman released the following statement of support ahead of the Senate Commerce Committee vote on the nomination of Rebecca Slaughter to be a Commissioner at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC):

“The internet industry encourages Senate Commerce to support Ms. Slaughter as the FTC’s fifth commissioner. The FTC’s core mission is to protect consumer welfare, focusing on areas with evidence of clear harm, and Ms. Slaughter is well-qualified to achieve that mission. Her extensive legislative experience in Congress and willingness to engage with a variety of stakeholders will serve her – and American consumers – well at the FTC. We look forward to seeing her and the other four FTC nominees confirmed by the full Senate soon.”
