Comment Period Extended on Proposed Regulations on Margin and Capital for Swap Dealers

Federal regulators have extended until July 11, 2011 the comment period on proposed regulations establishing margin and capital requirements for swap dealers, major swap participants, security-based swap dealers, and major security-based swap participants as required by the Dodd-Frank Act. The comment period was extended to allow interested persons more time to analyze the issues and prepare their comments. Originally, comments were due by June 24, 2011.
