Commodity Futures Trading Commission December 17, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Public Rulemaking Procedures
Document Number: 2019-27103
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-12-17
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the ``Commission'') is issuing a final rule that amends the Commission's regulations to eliminate the provisions that set forth the procedures for the formulation, amendment, or repeal of rules or regulations. Because the Administrative Procedure Act (``APA'') governs the Commission's rulemaking process, the Commission believes that it is unnecessary to codify the rulemaking process in a Commission regulation. The amended regulation is comprised solely of the procedure for filing petitions for rulemakings, as the APA does not address this process.
