CMC Hosts CFTC in MF Global Briefing

Representatives from agricultural associations and companies gathered Monday morning for a briefing with Commissioner Sommers and key CFTC staff.  This was the second of such briefings CMC has hosted.  With the investigation ongoing, the conversation focused on the bankruptcy process, the regulatory regime governing FCMs and SROs, and the potential legal theories for enforcement.   If you would like more detail, please feel free to contact us.  CMC staff will update our members as our Task Force begins contemplating policy recommendations.  The Commission will kick-off policy discussions later this month and we expect Congress to remain engaged throughout the spring and summer.
