    • Will a Republican Congress try to abolish the CFPB?
    • How will the Federal Trade Commission be impacted by the appointment of new commissioners and the designation of a new Chair?
    • How will the Federal Communications Commission be impacted by the designation of a chair and the filling of possible new openings?
    • What can we expect as a general overall attitude toward consumer issues in a Trump administration?
    • What kind of legislation will a new Republican Congress and President push with regard to consumer protection issues?
    • How will the Consumer Product Safety Commission be impacted by the desgination of a new chair and the filling of new commissioner vacancies?
