Today, Federal Trade Commission Chair Lina M. Khan announced that an open meeting of the Commission will be held virtually on Thursday, April 28, 2022. The open meeting will commence at 1pm ET and will begin with time for members of the public to address the Commission.
The following items will be on the tentative agenda for the April 28 Commission meeting:
Business Before the Commission
- Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding the Telemarketing Sales Rule: FTC staff will provide a presentation and the Commission will vote on the Notice and the Advanced Notice. The proposed changes to the Rule reflect input from the public. They would allow the rule to better address fraudulent business-to-business telemarketing and would introduce requirements for easy cancellation methods for telemarketing sales, among other improvements.
- Presentation on Section 13(b) of the Federal Trade Commission Act: Ahead of the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s AMG Capital Management v. FTC decision, which overturned the longstanding 13(b) authority to collect monetary redress for consumers, staff will provide a presentation on the decision’s impact on the agency’s enforcement work.
At the start of the meeting, Chair Khan will offer brief remarks and will then invite members of the public to share feedback on the Commission’s work generally and bring relevant matters to the Commission’s attention. Members of the public must sign up for an opportunity to address the Commission virtually at the April 28 event.
Each commenter will be given two minutes to share their comments. Those who cannot participate during the event may submit written comments or a link to a prerecorded video through a webform. Speaker registration and comment submission will be available through Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at 8 pm ET.
The FTC’s public meeting agendas will be posted on the Commission’s website at least seven days prior to the Commission’s next monthly meeting. A link to the event will be available in advance of the meeting via FTC.gov. The event will be recorded, and the webcast and any related comments will be available on the Commission’s website after the meeting. The Commission retains discretion to make public comments available following the event on ftc.gov. Due to challenges related to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, open meetings will be held virtually until further notice.
