Neither Chairman Gary Gensler nor Commissioner Bart Chilton of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has had their commissions renewed, leading to speculation that they may not remain at the agency past their current terms. Commissioner Jill Sommers is set to leave soon. "We may be faced with a set of new commissioners who will oversee a complex set of rules," said FIA Chairman Walter Lukken. However, Gensler can remain in his position through 2013, and Chilton through 2014 without being nominated again.
