    Where did you get those numbers? I read the hearing as 0-1 and 4 undecideds. Outside of Chilton, you can’t read too much into who asked which questions to whom.

    Of course it may be a moot point unfortunately. I don’t know if the CFTC would spend the political capital to pry the Lincoln amendment from the bill. Or if they did, it may well be of the form “Look, we weren’t going to approve these contracts anyway, but we might approve one that applies to industry-wide receipts, so don’t tie our hands. We are the technical experts here..”

    I don’t agree with that interpretation. I wasn’t there, but it seemed the only Commissioner who clearly signaled an opinion was Chilton.
