Statement of Commissioner Bart Chilton on Dodd-Frank Implementation Progress

"It’s football season and there’s a saying in the sport that a team getting close to the goal line is in the “red zone.” CFTC’s Dodd-Frank implementation and rulemaking processes are in the red zone, too.

It’s been a long drive down the field. We have finalized roughly two-thirds of the 60 rules we were charged with promulgating under the financial reform law. It’s taken longer than some of us hoped at the kickoff, but now the goal line is in sight.
