Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, and Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), have co-authored a letter addressed to federal regulators demanding regulatory clarity on digital assets.
Both elected officials are known for their support of Fintech innovation. Lummis has co-authored legislation aiming to create rules for digital assets.
