FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz is leading the charge for the vote from all five commissioners and is hoping for the gavel to fall late this week.

 

The push to make a quick decision is no doubt based on the decision by the senate to replace Commissioner Thomas Rosch with law professor George Mason. Rosch's last day on the commission will be Friday.
