The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission will receive funding increases for fiscal year 2011, The Wall Street Journal reports. The SEC will be awarded $1.2 billion in the fiscal year, which ends on September 30. The SEC funding is $116 million more than what was included in a Republican budget the U.S. House passed earlier this year. The CFTC will get $203 million under the budget deal, which is a 20% increase over its budget during fiscal 2010.
