Blumenthal Applauds Senate Confirmation of Alvaro Bedoya to the FTC

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Chairman of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security, applauded Senate confirmation of Alvaro Bedoya to serve as Commissioner on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC):

“Alvaro Bedoya will be a steadfast, strong champion for privacy and civil rights. I’ve seen firsthand Commissioner Bedoya’s commitment to holding Big Tech accountable for their abuses, and know he will be a powerful voice in protecting consumers. As costs and scams exploiting Americans skyrocket, this confirmation is critical to bolster FTC’s power to act swiftly, including to expose profiteering and fraud—and to decrease the pain in people’s pocketbooks. I’ve been proud to advocate for his nomination as a member of the Senate Commerce Committee and look forward to seeing his impressive work at the FTC.”
