Fighting Public Corruption


Location: Unknown

Government cannot lead without the public's trust so I've taken action to ensure public officials are working for you and not themselves. Earlier this year, the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act (STOCK) was signed into law, prohibiting Members of Congress and federal employees from engaging in insider trading. Included in the STOCK Act is legislation I helped write that eliminates federal pension payouts for elected officials convicted of public corruption crimes. In addition, I have introduced the State Ethics Law Protection Act (SELPA) which protects states that have enacted laws against pay-to-play practices in highway contracting decisions that corrode the integrity of the public works system and let individuals profit at the expense of taxpayers.
