FIA Issues Statement on H.R. 4413, CFTC Reauthorization Bill (April 9, 2014)

Washington, D.C.—April 9, 2014—FIA today issued the following statement in response to the House Agriculture Committee’s voice vote on H.R. 4413, a bill which reauthorizes the Commodity Futures Trading Commission through September 2018. The legislation also includes provisions to better protect customer assets, it revises the organizational and operational requirements of the CFTC staff, and it provides regulatory relief to end-users of derivatives.

“FIA commends the House Agriculture Committee for its continued bi-partisan approach to developing thoughtful legislation. While the process of enacting these statutory changes is far from complete, such thoughtful coordination among the various political interests is critical to ensuring that the final product yields a balanced outcome.”
