Does the FTC make laws?

Hi. I'm not an expert on business, law, government and politics. I know the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) regulates and enforces laws but do they make laws? I have an FTC-related question I want to ask and I want to make sure I have this straight.

Please help. Thank you.

Is COPPA a law the FTC made?

@JGoldman10,
COPPA was written by and passed by Congress, signed into law by then President Clinton.

No. The legislative branch makes laws, as signed by the president or if a veto is overridden.

You don't need to be an expert in law to know this. You need to pass 6th grade social studies.

@jespah,
I know that. COPPA is a law that's managed by the FTC.

@JGoldman10,
Then if you already know the answer, why are you asking?

@jespah,
I was confused because according to read I read and saw about COPPA and the FTC online it seemed like the FTC creates their own laws. I thought COPPA was a law they created.

@JGoldman10,
You are contradicting yourself from the earlier comment.
