O’Malia Seeks Dodd-Frank Review

CFTC member asks OMB to look at the cost-benefit analysis on Dodd-Frank derivatives rules.

A Republican member of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission is seeking an Office of Management and Budget review of Dodd-Frank Act derivatives rules that he says have gotten insufficient scrutiny from his agency.

Scott O’Malia, one of two Republicans on the five-member CFTC, said the agency has failed to analyze alternatives to its regulations and hasn’t justified its choices with specific cost-benefit analysis. He made the comments in a letter to Jeffrey Zients, OMB’s acting director, dated yesterday.
