The Commission, before prescribing any rule or regulation under subsection (b), shall
transmit a statement with respect to such rule or regulation to the Senate and to
the House of Representatives, in accordance with the provisions of this subsection.
Such statement shall set forth the proposed rule or regulation and shall contain
a detailed explanation and justification of such rule or regulation.
