Members of Congress Open Wallets and Pocketbooks

Members of Congress and senior Congressional staff may be a little distracted from legislative activity this week and next as they prepare to file their annual personal financial disclosure reports.  

Personal financial reports disclosing CY2013 family wealth and income are due to be filed by May 15th. Some members of Congress, including Senators Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. (currently ranked 4th richest member of Congress) , Robert Corker, R-Tenn. (currently ranked 22nd), Kay Hagan, D-N.C. (currently ranked 45th), James Risch, R-Idaho (currently ranked 19th), Mark Warner, D-Va. (currently ranked 3rd), and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. have already been granted extensions. Many more are expected.
