US Senate confirms CFTC chair, commissioners

The U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed two commissioners and the chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission on the last day before the chamber heads for its month-long August recess.

Senators confirmed in a voice vote Republicans Christopher Giancarlo as chairman and Brian Quintenz as commissioner, as well as Democrat Rostin Behnam as commissioner.

The chamber did not confirm a third Republican, Dawn Stump, to the agency. It leaves the commission with one Democrat, as Sharon Bowen recently announced her resignation.
