The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has released a list of 30 separate rulemakings that it must undertake to implement the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and is soliciting public input prior to publishing proposed rules for comment. The CFTC is generally required to promulgate these rules in 360 days from the date of enactment (July 21), although certain of the rules must be promulgated within 90, 180 or 270 days.
The CFTC has established a separate e-mail address for each of the rulemakings to which comments may be submitted. The email address for a particular subject can be accessed by clicking on the link below, and then clicking on the subject in question. The user will be directed to a page containing an email address to which comments should be addressed.
