O'Malia resigns from CFTC

From the July 23, 2014 issue of Public Power Daily

Scott O’Malia is stepping down from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), effective Aug. 8. In a July 21 letter to President Obama, he said he was leaving "to pursue other opportunities" without specifying what those were. O’Malia has been a strong supporter of relief from CFTC rules that restricted the ability of utility special entities (including public power utilities) to engage in swaps to hedge risks stemming from their electricity or natural gas operations.
