New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky will give remarks on the agency's efforts to regulate digital currency activities at a Washington, DC event tomorrow.

According to a press release from the NYDFS, Lawsky will be speaking at the BITS Emerging Payments Forum at 3:30pm UTC.

In a tweet, Lawsky suggested that the speech may focus on the BitLicense, the regulatory framework crafted by the NYDFS that was expected to be released before the end of last month.

The speech comes shortly after the announcement that Lawsky would step down later this month after serving four years as the state's chief banking regulator. He is expected to advise companies on digital currency issues as part of a private legal advisory firm, according to reports at the time.

A livestream of the speech will be broadcast here.
