Derivatives Oversight Measure Defeated

LCG, Apr. 11, 2002--A measure that would have required public records and tracking of over-the-counter energy derivatives fell 12 votes short of the necessary 60 in the U.S. Senate, and was withdrawn by its lead sponsor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Responsibility for oversight would have been given to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. It would also have set capital requirements for online trading exchanges, whose operations would be made open to inspection.

Strong opposition to the measure came from financial companies, banks and traders. Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan have said that the regulation would provide no additional necessary regulatory oversight, and would create counterproductive legal complications within the derivatives market.

A former chairman of investment bank Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Sen. Jon Corzine (D-N.J.), spoke in favor, saying the amendment "brings forward fairly simple and straightforward oversight functions." Goldman Sachs itself expressed the opinion that more work was needed before enacting a similar porposal.
