Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The STOCK Act

“It is becoming harder and harder to remember a time when the Senate and House followed the legislative process and came together to reconcile their differences and send meaningful legislation to the President. 

“I regret that Republicans in the House eliminated the bipartisan anti-corruption amendment in the STOCK Act, which was adopted overwhelmingly by the Senate, and I am disappointed that there are now objections to going to conference to restore this important anti-corruption provision.”
