The United States Senate voted 51-50 to confirm Alvaro Bedoya as a Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Vice President Kamala Harris cast the tie-breaking vote. Now that he is confirmed, the FTC has a full slate of five commissioners – 3 Democrat-appointed and 2-Republican appointed. With a Democratic majority, the FTC is expected to begin implementing an aggressive agenda focused on consumer protection and price competition with the Funeral Rule on the list of rules to be considered. ICCFA is closely monitoring any movement at the FTC with respect to the Funeral Rule.
