Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming are collaborating on a measure that will be introduced soon and would provide regulatory certainty for cryptocurrency.
Senators Lummis and Gillibrand collaboration for upcoming measures
During a Politico Live event on Thursday, Senators Lummis and Gillibrand hinted at their upcoming measure. The bill’s details are still being worked on. As a consequence, a broad-based regulatory system for future management of this corporation will be established.
Despite the lack of clarity, Lummis and Gillibrand have asserted that the bill will not impact the Securities and Exchange Commission’s existing securities definitions.
It will also have a standing body, according to Gillibrand, that will decide things as the business grows and parameters vary.
At the Politico event, Lummis and Gillibrand argued that their measure would enhance the CFTC with more resources to oversee the crypto business.
The law also tries to assuage fears expressed by the recently enacted infrastructure bill, which intended to strengthen crypto tax reporting obligations. The bill has a thorny definition of broker leaving some in the dark about which companies would be required to submit user data. According to Lummis, the impending bill defines the broker term.
The bill will be submitted in the coming weeks, according to Gillibrand. It would then go through the standard committee procedure, which includes hearings and suggested modifications.
