Walz Co-Sponsors STOCK Act 15 Nov 11

Legislation co-sponsored by Southern Minnesota Congressman Tim Walz aims to stop the growing problem of insider trading on Capitol Hill. Walz says the STOCK Act also requires “political intelligence” firms to register like lobbyists do. Walz says lawmakers meet with the heads of corporations, hospitals and other businesses every day in Washington DC. Members of Congress and their employees have reportedly bought and sold stock with non-public information from congressional office computers.
