Consumer coalition letter on the FTC Collaboration Act of 2021 study

Letter to the Federal Trade Commission signed by Consumer Reports, Consumer Federation of America, National Consumer Law Center (on behalf of its low-income clients), National Community Reinvestment Coalition, National Consumers League and Student Borrower Protection Center on the FTC Collaboration Act of 2021, which directs the FTC to conduct a study on facilitating and refining existing efforts with State Attorneys General (AGs) to prevent, publicize, and penalize frauds and scams.

In the letter, the consumer groups laud the efforts made thus far by the FTC and AG partners to collaborate on information sharing and enforcement initiatives and encourage the FTC to invest more resources to enhance collaboration and ease the burden associated with information sharing on its state partners.
