    Washington, DC – CFTC Commissioner Sharon Y. Bowen today released the following statement after the Senate confirmation vote of Russ Behnam and Brian Quintenz as CFTC Commissioners:

      “I congratulate Russ Behnam and Brian Quintenz on their U.S. Senate confirmations to be Commissioners at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.  We are fortunate that each brings valuable experience and knowledge of the futures, options and swaps market and the breadth of issues challenging our agency in the 21st century.  Those challenges, such as automated trading, position limits, governance, international harmonization, improving swaps data and increasing the agency’s budget, will be issues the newly constituted commission must address and soon.  I thank Russ and Brian for their willingness to serve our nation.  I look forward to working with them and offer my help and guidance as they assume their new roles.”
