President Biden Announces FTC Nominee to Replace Rohit Chopra

President Joe Biden on Monday announced his intent to nominate Alvaro Bedoya to serve on the Federal Trade Commission.

If he is confirmed, Bedoya would replace Rohit Chopra, who is awaiting Senate confirmation as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, CNBC reports.

The FTC has five members, including Chair Lina Khan and commissioners Noah Phillips, Rebecca Slaughter and Christine Wilson. No more than three can be from the same political party.

Alvaro Bedoya is the founding director of the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law, where he is a visiting professor of law. 

Chopra has served on the FTC since 2018.

If confirmed as CFPB director, he will succeed Acting Director David Uejio, who has served since Director Kathy Kraninger resigned in January when Biden took office. Chopra will need to resign from his position on FTC to officially start as CFPB director.
