House Agriculture Staffer on CMC Policy Call
August 29, 2012 Leave a comment
A senior staff member of the House Agriculture Committee discussed legislation passed in the House earlier this year on derivatives. He also briefed CMC members on a recent hearing pertaining to the recent MF Global and PFG Best implosions in the futures industry. Given the political uncertainties with the upcoming elections , and the fact that Congress is busy in campaign mode rather than legislating, the staff member could not offer a prognosis on what lies ahead for Title VII related legislative fixes in 2012.
