Pelosi, Hoyer Argue For A Weakened STOCK Act

Posted by Brian Patrick on

 FYI –

This afternoon, Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi stated that House Democrats’ are in favor or bringing a weakened version of the STOCK Act to the House floor for a vote, and then taking that weakened bill to a conference with the Senate. Moments later, Whip Hoyer echoed the former Speaker’s comments in a colloquy with Majority Leader Cantor. Leader Cantor then gave Mr. Hoyer a history lesson of his own, and made clear that the House will be voting on a strengthened version of the Senate bill, instead of the bill that Democrats let languish for years.

Highlights:


Cantor: First of all, I know the gentleman likes to talk about past Congresses. When he was House Majority Leader he did not bring this STOCK Act to the floor and it was a submitted bill. So let’s set the record straight: This Majority Leader is going to bring a STOCK Act bill to the floor next week.

Cantor: Mr. Walz’s bill actually would weaken the Senate Bill. It is our intention to pass and get to the President a workable strong bill that makes sure we are delivering on the promise that we made to the people who sent us here. I hope the Gentleman, and I know he wants to join me in the effort to reinstill the confidence in the public that we are abiding by that trust.
