Washington, D.C. – House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) today issued the following statement after the Senate Agriculture Committee held a hearing on three nominations for commissioners to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC):

“I applaud the White House for its quality nominations to the CFTC and thank the Senate Agriculture Committee for their swift consideration. As we look to protect the public and ensure the integrity of our futures and swaps markets, it is imperative we restore the commission to its full strength. I encourage the members of the Senate Agriculture Committee to advance these capable nominees and the Senate to confirm them without delay.”
