SIIA Provides Comments on the Petition for Rulemaking Regarding the Disqualification of Commissioners

SIIA sent its comments on the petition for rulemaking regarding the disqualification of Commissioners to April J. Tabor, Secretary of the Federal Trade Commission. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently petitioned the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to initiate a rulemaking to establish a limited set of enhanced procedures for the disqualification of Commissioners in response to a request for recusal. Without taking a position on the Chamber’s specific proposal, SIIA agrees that greater procedural transparency, and a clearer standard for Commissioner recusals, would serve both the public and the institutional interests of the FTC.
