Rehberg Co-Sponsors Bipartisan Legislation
Congressman Denny Rehberg co-sponsored the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (stock) Act to expand reporting requirements for congressional members and staff relating to securities and commodities trading. The legislation also educates members of congress and their staff about proper financial conduct. The legislation introduced by representative Tim Walz, is aimed at stopping insider trading by members of congress or their staff. Rehberg’s sponsorships follows a wall street journal investigation that revealed 72 instances of potential insider trading among congressional aides on both sides of the aisle. Rehberg says he hopes the house will act decisively to pass this legislation and get to work building a pro-job environment to get our economy back on track.
