STOCK Act Speeds Up, Despite Concerns

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call
On Tuesday, Reps. Louise Slaughter and Tim Walz, authors of the House version of the STOCK Act, called on Members to pass the legislation.

It’s the “most important” part of the bill, she said, unloading on Cantor because of changes he might make. “What Cantor’s trying to do for his friends, I don’t know. ... I think ‘strengthening’ here is a euphemism for weakening.”

Asked whether the registration provision would be included in the House bill, Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring said, “The purpose of the bill has always been to ensure that Members of Congress do not use insider information gained through public office for personal profit.”
