Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam (IL-06) issued the following statement after the House passage of the STOCK Act:
"It's imperative that Americans trust and have faith in their elected officials. Constituents deserve the right to know that their elected representatives live by the same rules they do. I applaud the House for passing the STOCK Act. The House version is a much more responsible path forward than the Senate's, holding the Administration accountable to the same reporting requirements as Congress. It also includes Illinois Congressman Dold's valuable provision that no Member of Congress convicted of a crime receives a taxpayer-funded pension afterwards."
