    (c) The Attorney General shall adopt rules when necessary and proper to carry out the purposes of this section. The rules shall not be inconsistent with the rules, regulations, and decisions of the Federal Trade Commission or with the decisions of the courts of the United States construing federal anti-trust law.

    (d) The Attorney General has the same authority to conduct civil investigations and enter into assurances of discontinuance as provided under subchapter 1 of this chapter.
