Casey Pushes for Support of STOCK Act

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, legislation he cosponsored to provide more transparency in Congress:

“I co-sponsored the STOCK Act because I believe that public service is a sacred trust that is violated at the peril of our democracy.  This measure is a critical step in helping to restore more confidence in Congress, and it will help make clear to Pennsylvanians and those across the nation that we expect Washington to play by the same rules as everyone else.  I call on my colleagues in the Senate to join me in supporting this important legislation to target insider trading by Congress.”
