OPEN: Online Protection & ENforcement of Digital Trade Act

Bill Passage

(3) CONSULTATIONS. In conducting an investigation initiated under paragraph (1), the Commission shall consult with, and seek advice and information from, the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Secretary of Commerce, the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator, the United States Trade Representative, and such other officials as the Commission considers appropriate.


This should read the commision "may consult" rather than the commision "shall consult". Requiring cousel from any one of these contacts would be an undue burdon, but requiring counsel from all of them would be impossible.
