U.S. Senator Steve Daines announced that Acting Chairman,
J. Christopher Giancarlo of the U.S. Commodity Futures
Trading Commission will deliver a keynote address at Montana
Ag Summit 2017.
“I look forward to hearing Acting Chairman Giancarlo speak
at the Montana Ag Summit about his vision for the CFTC and its
role in reducing regulatory hurdles to expand opportunities for
Montana farmers and ranchers,” Daines said.
“During my time at the Commodity Futures Trading
Commission, I have made good on a commitment to get
out of Washington and meet with producers of cattle, pork,
poultry, corn, soybean, dairy and various other ag and energy
products,” Giancarlo said. “I have also met with many workers
at grain elevators, cooperatives, factories, exchanges and futures
commission merchants who serve American producers. It is my
goal in the coming year to continue to travel and meet those in
the agricultural sector who produce so much for our country. In
my travels, it is obvious to me that people have the sense that
Washington politicians and bureaucrats don’t understand what
is happening in the rest of the country. I hear it when people
say they want sensible, not burdensome regulation so that they
can build their dreams. I look forward to visiting the Big Sky
country to hear about what matters most to you.”
CFTC is an independent agency that is responsible for
regulating commodities futures and plays a critical role in
helping ensure that farmers and ranchers in Montana and across
the country have access to the risk management tools that are
essential to their operations.
Giancarlo was designated as Acting Chairman of the
Commission on Jan. 20, 2017.
The summit, co-sponsored by Daines, will take place in
Great Falls on May 31 and June 1, 2017. The Montana Ag
Summit will bring the nation’s agricultural leaders to Montana’s
Golden Triangle. The focus of the summit is on strengthening
international relationships for Montana agriculture, showcasing
technological advancements, promoting the next generation of
farmers and ranchers, and discussing the challenges of federal
policies and regulations.
