Republican lawmakers took a shot at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Gary Gensler on Monday, announcing proposed legislation that would seek to remove him. But they’d need bi-partisan support for it to pass the Senate.
House Majority Whip Tom Emmer, R-Minn., a longtime proponent of digital assets, joined the introduction of Rep. Warren Davidson’s so-called “SEC Stabilization Act” that aims to restructure the Securities and Exchange Commission and remove Gary Gensler as Chair.
The proposed legislation would adjust the commission to include a sixth commissioner, and a single political party would not be able to hold more than three commissioner seats at a given time.
