U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., announced on Aug. 2 the committee unanimously voted to favorably report the following nominees to serve as commissioners at the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC): Rostin Behnam, Brian D. Quintenz, and Dawn DeBerry Stump. The nominees may now be considered by the full U.S. Senate for confirmation.
“We all agree that the CFTC needs a full commission,” the senators said. “We’re pleased our committee has done its work to get these nominees through in a bipartisan manner.”
The Committee held a hearing on the nominees on July 27.
The nominees were approved by voice vote.
