Regulators, Senatorial Holds and FTC Power on the Rise

By June 30, 2009Regulations

A couple of posts about regulation over at Point of Law:

One comments on Sen. Chambliss’ hold on Cass Sunstein to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the White House, which is not a good idea. The folks at OMB Watch seem to agree (and how often does that happen)?

The other notes an aggressive will to power by at least one new appointee at the Federal Trade Commission. Yes, the guy used to sue for Public Citizen is now running the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. Oh boy.
