US House Committee to Pass Stablecoin Regulatory Bill in July
The congressional committee of House representatives is busy drafting new regulatory rules for cryptocurrencies. Chairperson Patrick McHenry R-NC has shared plans for a new meeting to discuss amendments in the existing legislation with regard to cryptocurrencies.
These new changes are directed toward addressing the transition of securities into commodities that have inherently lower regulatory implications. At the same time, the chairperson of the House Financial Services Committee also plans to introduce market structure provisions.
The bill in question has been drafted by McHenry in tandem with Representative Glenn Thompson R-Pa. Thompson chairs the House Agriculture Committee. McHenry has scheduled the meeting on Wednesday which coincides with the regular oversight hearing of Fed Chairperson Jerome Powell.
The committee is also planning to discuss another bill during the meeting regarding the stablecoin framework. The stablecoin bill has been authored by McHenry and representative French Hill R-Ark.
During the meeting, the committee members are going to learn about recent edits made in the bills and conduct a vote for approval. Once passed by the committee, the bill will be put for a vote among all the House of Representatives.
