GovTrack: Bills by Subject: Derivative Securities

Derivative securities bills

Below are the bills that are related to the “Derivative securities” subject term. Click the Add Tracker button to the right to subscribe to this subject term.

There is no legislation in this session of Congress for this subject term.

This subject term is no longer used. In 2009, the Congressional Research Service, an arm of Congress that classifies bills, changed the way they categorize bills. Some subject terms used before 2009, including this one, are no longer used and will not apply to bills on GovTrack anymore. is a “civic project to track Congress.” A few months ago I signed up to receive alerts on a number of different topics, in particular, I wanted to be notified whenever legislation about the regulating of derivatives was proposed or considered.

But I found out tonight that the term “derivative securities” is no longer a subject term used by the Congressional Research Service, and I can’t find any term that is equivalent.

I will be very upset if the CRS has removed this subject term and hasn’t replaced it with something new that will allow citizens and legislators to find and track legislation on derivatives, when the unregulated use of derivatives (and particularly OTC derivatives) led to the global financial meltdown that we experienced in 2008.

I’m going on LinkedIn to find if someone at the CRS can explain to me what happened, and hopefully direct me to the appropriate subject term they are using now to categorize bills related to derivatives.
