CFTC To Consider Delay in Swaps Rules

Move would give agency more time to write regulations.

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission will consider a proposal today exempting swaps from Dodd-Frank Act rules set to take effect in mid-July, giving the agency more time to finish writing regulations for the $601 trillion market, said Gary Gensler, CFTC chairman.

The agency will consider a proposal providing “temporary relief” from some regulatory requirements scheduled to be in force on July 16, one year from the enactment of Dodd-Frank, Gensler said in a letter to three Republican senators.
