WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement regarding Senate passage of the House version of the STOCK Act:

“With the Senate’s passage of the STOCK Act today we are finally moving forward to prevent insider trading at all levels of the federal government. People deserve to know and trust that Members of Congress and those in Washington are living under the same rules as they are. The STOCK Act is a product of bipartisan efforts in the House and the Senate and will help restore the public’s trust in their elected officials. I hope the President will act quickly to make it clear to the American people that transparency and accountability are the highest priority.”
