Regulatory Transparency Project

July 8, 2020 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (EDT)

Join partner Bill MacLeod for this panel, which will examine recent calls for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to engage in substantive rulemaking under the competition and consumer-protection prongs of Section 5 of the FTC Act. How far does FTC statutory authority under 6(g) extend? Is rulemaking appropriate as a matter of policy? How has FTC rulemaking fared in the past and what guideposts should apply?
