WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Senate passed the STOCK Act: 

"I commend the Senate for heeding the President's call in his State of the Union address to pass legislation ensuring that those who serve in government play by the same set of rules as everyone else and don’t profit from inside information. The STOCK Act, introduced in the House by Reps. Tim Walz and Louise Slaughter, has bipartisan support, and I am encouraged that the Republican leadership has agreed to address this issue next week."
