Coalition urges Senate to restore FTC powers to penalize wrongdoers and compensate victims

Coalition letter in support of S. 4145, the Consumer Protection Remedies Act of 2022. This bill would restore the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) authority to stop misconduct in the marketplace, and critically, to provide timely refunds and equitable relief to victims of consumer fraud and deception. A Supreme Court decision had held that the FTC's powers did not extend to providing refunds derived from disgorging profits from wrongdoers.
