The newest violators of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act's disclosure provisions include the Texas Republicans Pat Fallon and Michael Burgess, as well as the Pennsylvania Democrat Dwight Evans.These violations come as a growing number of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle — from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat — have responded to Insider's "Conflicted Congress" reporting project by recommending increased restrictions on how members of Congress may invest their own money."Conflicted Congress" showed the myriad ways members of the US House and Senate had eviscerated their own financial-ethics standards, avoided consequences, and blinded Americans to the many moments when lawmakers' personal finances clashed with their public duties.Fallon, who was late reporting up to $18 million in stock trades earlier this year, missed the deadline again in December. And, of course, I'm open to having any conversations with any members."Legislation titled the Ban Conflicted Trading Act, sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Jeff Merkley, a Democrat of Oregon, and in the House by Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, a Democrat of Illinois, would separately bar members of Congress from trading individual stocks.In a December survey of voters conducted by the conservative group Convention of States Action, 76% of respondents gave a thumbs-down to lawmakers and their spouses trading stocks — with the opinion that those individuals had garnered an "unfair advantage" in the stock market — while only 5% of respondents said they were fine with the practice.
