FTC Seeks More Power Over Telecom Industry

July 18, 2002|Reuters

Federal Trade Commission officials asked Congress for expanded authority over the telecommunications industry to better protect against fraud as well as deceptive advertising and billing.

FTC commissioners urged members of a Senate Commerce subcommittee to rescind a provision that exempts telecommunications companies from the agency's oversight in some cases.

Responsibility for regulating carriers rests with the Federal Communications Commission.
