U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is introducing legislation to ban stock trading by members of Congress.
Sens. Ossoff and Mark Kelly (D-AZ) today introduced the Ban Congressional Stock Trading Act, which will require all members of Congress, their spouses, and dependent children to place their stocks into a blind trust or divest the holding — ensuring they cannot use inside information to influence their stock trades and make a profit.
The American people overwhelmingly support this policy, with 86% saying they back the measure, including 88% of Democrats, 87% of Republicans, and 81% of Independents.
