OTC Energy Derivatives Bill Introduced

LCG, July 12, 2002--Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Senate have joined forces to introduce an over-the-counter energy derivatives trading bill.

Republicans Peter Fitzgerald, IL, and Richard Lugar, IN, and Democrats Dianne Feinstein, CA, Maria Cantwell, WA, and Tom Harkin, IA, introduced the bill yesterday in an effort to bring transparency to OTC energy derivatives trading.

Under this legislation, electronic exchanges would have to submit to reporting, disclosure, registration, and capital requirements. Previously online energy trading was not subject to regulatory oversight, according to the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000.

Earlier this year Senator Feinstein had introduced a similar bill to increase transparency and provide oversight to OTC trades, but the bill was defeated. The new bill may see a better reception in the Senate, considering current federal trading investigations.
