Senate Ag Committee Look to Fill CFTC Positions
Yesterday, Senate Agriculture Chair Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) called for quick confirmation of four nominees to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission during a hearing. After the hearing, Senator Boozman (R-AR) echoed Senator Stabenow’s urgency to confirm the nominees. He told reporters he does not “anticipate any problems” reporting any of them out of the committee and on to the Senate floor. “We’ll have a vote as soon as possible,” Senator Boozman said.
