FTC Extends Public Comment Period
We've said it before and will say it again; if not guided by contributions from across the population, these rules could put undue stress on the many in an effort to correct the bad faith behavior of the few. No matter what you think the FTC should consider before making a decision, we encourage having your opinions on the matter heard.

The FTC has expanded the window for comments regarding "junk fee" rules from January 9 until February 8.
Comments from businesses and community members are being collected to help inform the commission's actions.
The 3 things listed by the FTC for consideration are:
- Unnecessary charges for worthless, free, or fake products or services
- Unavoidable charges imposed on captive consumers
- Surprise charges that secretly push up the purchase price
