New Senate Bill Would Make it Illegal for Congress or Spouses to Trade Stocks While Serving, Dubbed -- The PELOSI Act
Even cuter, in the case of the bill, PELOSI is actually an acronym that stands for Preventing Elected Leaders from Owning Securities and Investments. It was Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) who recently introduced S.58, which he interestingly dubbed the "PELOSI Act," taking a clever swipe at former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul, who not too long ago, raised some questions about the timing and ethics of some of their stock market maneuverings.
Senator Hawley Introduces the PELOSI Act and Other Recently Introduced Senate Bills
Just like the House of Representatives, the Senate has also been busy with lawmakers introducing new legislation that they hope to get passed. I will continue monitoring these bills and will provide updates if they have any movement. It's important that voters are aware of what legislation is being proposed, and you should contact your elected officials and make your opinion known by asking them to support the proposed legislation if you agree with it or by telling them you are opposed to the proposed legislation.
