Members of the Senate Agriculture Committee are working on regulations for the over-the-counter derivatives market. Sens. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., who is chairwoman of the committee, and Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., said they plan to focus on bipartisan legislation after the April recess. "The swaps market will be regulated, but let me say this: I don't believe in overreaching or regulation for regulation's sake. We must be surgical with how we regulate," Lincoln said.
