On Tuesday, August 13th, CFTC Commissioner Scott D.O'Malia issued a statement in which he states his opposition to a Division of Enforcement request to issue an omnibus order of investigation that could then be extended without another opportunity for a Commission vote. O'Malia requests that the DOE reintroduce their request without this "absent objection" provision, and that the Commission in turn assess its own procedures to confirm their legal authority and transparency in these matters.
