Description:
The FTC is headed by a Commission composed of five members who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate, and who serve staggered seven-year terms. The President chooses one Commissioner to act as Chairman. No more than three Commissioners can be of the same political party. As of May 2009, the Chairman is Jon Leibowitz. The other Commissioners are Pamela Jones Harbour, William E. Kovacic, and J. Thomas Rosch. One Commissioner seat is vacant. The FTC has two major law enforcement bureaus, Consumer Protection and Competition, supported by the Bureau of Economics, regional offices, and mission support offices. The agency enforces laws that prohibit business practices that are anticompetitive, deceptive, or unfair. It also promotes informed consumer choice and public understanding of the competitive process. The work of the FTC helps protect consumers and preserve competition in the United States and, increasingly, the world.
