McHenry’s Speech at Consensus Event
At the Consensus event on April 28th, McHenry gave more information about the upcoming hearings that will take place in May. According to him, these hearings represent one of the first holistic views of digital asset regulation by the House committee. Additionally, he revealed plans to report a bill within two months which would deal with capital raising processes for digital assets as well as transitioning products from Securities regime to Commodities while preserving their rights in other areas outside these regimes.
McHenry Mentions Support For Sen. Lummis’ Bipartisan Bill
McHenry also mentioned his support for Senator Cynthia Lummis’ bipartisan bill which seeks to protect consumers while simultaneously encouraging innovation in both regulation and technology development when it comes to cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based technologies. The senator believes that this bill can help create an environment where crypto firms are able to thrive without fear of over-regulation or government interference.
Overall, it seems that Congress is taking up calls from crypto firms and investors for clarity on regulations regarding cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based technologies in order to create an environment where these sectors can flourish without fear of over-regulation or government interference – all thanks to Sen. Lummis’s bipartisan bill and other efforts from congress members such as McHenry and his team up with other house committees .
