Not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Commission, and the Board of Governors shall submit a joint report to the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry of the Senate, and the Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on Agriculture of the House of Representatives recommendations for—
(1) improving consistency in the designated clearing entity oversight programs of the Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission;
(2) promoting robust risk management by designated clearing entities;
(3) promoting robust risk management oversight by regulators of designated clearing entities; and
