The House Agriculture Committee voted Friday to issue the subpoena. Committee Chairman Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., said Corzine hadn’t yet confirmed that he would come and “his testimony is essential to fulfill our objectives.”

It woulkd be a rare appearance by a former member of Congress asked to testify under oath about a matter under federal investigation in which he was involved.

Regulators are investigating whether MF Global used money from customers’ accounts for its own purposes as its financial condition worsened.

An estimated $1.2 billion or more may be missing from customer accounts.
