Gary Gensler said the financial legislation reported by the Conference Committee earlier this week is "strong, comprehensive and historic."

In his first detailed analysis of the legislation he worked tirelessly to support, the chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) applauded the legislation for including strong regulation of over-the-counter derivatives dealers for the first time. "This includes both bank dealers on Wall Street and nonbank dealers, such as the next AIG," he said in testimony Thursday before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.
