FIA Supports House Bill Reauthorizing CFTC

January 12th, 2017

FIA president and CEO Walt Lukken sent a letter to Congressional leaders today in support of H.R. 238, the Commodity End User Relief Act.

"H.R. 238 contains prudent internal risk controls to safeguard market data and improved customer protections sought by the market participants who rely on derivatives to manage their risks," Lukken wrote. "These are examples of policy enhancements that have garnered tremendous favor in recent years as evidenced by the bi-partisan support they have received in previous Congressional sessions."
