Please support this petition to urge members of Congress to support the Senate measure that would enable the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to prosecute cases of insider trading by lawmakers, similar to a bill in the House, and make it a violation of the rules of the House and Senate to engage in such an activity.
The Senate measure aims to create more accountability so that anyone who uses their role in Congress for financial gain would have to answer to the Justice Department, SEC and congressional ethics rules.
This issue has been stuck in Congress for the last 5 years. It is time to get this legislation passed!
