August 8, 2014

WASHINGTON, Aug. 8 -- The House Agriculture Committee issued the following news release:

Chairman Frank Lucas today released the following statement on Scott O'Malia's last day as Commissioner of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Last month, O'Malia announced he would resign to pursue other opportunities.

"Scott O'Malia never lost sight of the fact that regulatory actions have consequences both intended and unintended. He served as a voice of reason and an advocate for a balanced approach to regulatory reform in the U.S.

"I appreciated his leadership as chairman of the agency's Technology Advisory Committee, which was crucial in highlighting that technology is at the center of our markets and the Commission must modernize to fulfill its responsibility.

"I am grateful for his service and I wish him well in all of his future endeavors."
