Today, the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee approved three nominations for Federal Trade Commission Commissioners. The Committee reported nominations of Andrew Ferguson, Melissa Holyoak, and current commissioner Rebecca Slaughter to the full Senate for consideration. The Committee unanimously approved the nominations signaling Senate confirmation once the votes are scheduled sometime later this year. Once the nominees are confirmed, the FTC will be operating at full capacity with a majority of three Democratic commissioners and two Republican Commissioners. The new Republicans, Holyoak and Ferguson, are expected to be in place at the FTC by the time proposed changes to the Funeral Rule are issued.
