Stabenow Statement on CFTC Position Limits Reproposal

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, today released a statement on the decision by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to repropose the position limits rule: 

“I am disappointed that the CFTC is not finalizing the position limits rule in its entirety this year – nearly six years after the CFTC first proposed a rule.  Position limits are a critical tool for the CFTC to ensure that Americans are not paying too much for energy at home or at the pump.  Finalizing a full and meaningful rule should be the first priority of the Commission next year.”
