Ted Pens Latest Letter to SEC Urging Market Reform

In an Aug. 5 letter to SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro, Ted reiterated that the May 6 stock market “flash crash” exposed serious flaws in our market structure.

“The SEC must end the current ‘wild west’ environment of ‘anything goes’ in the microsecond trading world and replace it with a sense that trading activity is being actively monitored and policed for illegal trading behavior,” Ted wrote. He went on to say that the May 6 crash is "an historic moment for the Commission, a moment when it must fulfill its obligation as the steward for those investors who lack the clout of Wall Street's largest financial players."

Kaufman Continues to Advocate for Clean Energy Policy

A prominent advocate of clean energy technology and energy efficiency, Ted spent the August recess meeting with small business owners and university faculty to discuss their ideas to cutback on carbon pollution and energy waste. He talked with leading energy researchers, toured the wind turbine facility at the University of Delaware’s Lewes campus, visited a company conducting carbon capture research, and toured a modular carpet recycling plant, the first of its kind in the country.

With the Senate back in session, Ted hopes to continue to help put America on the path to a clean energy economy.
