Lucas: New Leadership at CFTC Must Focus on Consensus, Bring Certainty to the Marketplace    


Rep. Frank Lucas, Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Timothy Massad as the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and Christopher Giancarlo and Sharon Bowen as CFTC Commissioners.

"I am pleased the CFTC will be operating at full strength once again. I am hopeful that Chairman Massad will lead by consensus, which will be better for America’s economy in the long run. Specifically, I am hopeful that he will reverse recent Commission actions that seem to ignore the concerns of our farmers and ranchers, as well as pursue commonsense reforms that will bring certainty to the marketplace for America's manufacturers, energy firms, and utilities.

"The House Agriculture Committee just passed a wide-ranging, bipartisan CFTC reauthorization bill that makes numerous reforms, including improving the operations of the agency, protecting futures customers, and reducing regulatory burdens on job creators. Chairman Massad can start there if he needs a blueprint for action," said Chairman Frank Lucas.
