Issue: Derivatives; End-user relief
To: House of Representatives
Filing Type: Letter to Congress
Description: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly supports H.R. 238, the “Commodity End-User Relief Act,” which would reauthorize the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) and enact a number of important reforms to provide regulatory relief for end users of the derivatives market. It would also promote accountability at the CFTC and protect Main Street businesses from onerous and unintended consequences of derivatives regulation.
