House Agriculture Committee Postpones Swaps Markup
The House Agriculture Committee has postponed tomorrow’s scheduled markup of three swaps bills (H.R. 4235, H.R. 1838, H.R 3283). Committee Chairman Frank Lucas (R-OK) said yesterday that the Committee “will take the time to gather all relevant information before we proceed to ensure there are no unintended consequences of the legislation that would encourage recklessness in our financial institutions."
