Library of Congress Summary
The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
Amends Rule XXIII (Code of Official Conduct) of the Rules of the House of Representatives to require a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner (Member) to place into a blind trust all securities, commodities for future delivery, security-based swaps, or swaps that are transacted on or through the facilities of a national securities exchange or from or through a broker or dealer, unless the Member files with the Clerk of the House a specified detailed disclosure report of all such transactions within five business days after the last day of a calendar month in which a transaction is completed.
Requires the Clerk to make available to the public a detailed summary of each such disclosure report.
Prohibits a Member or officer or employee of the House from purchasing or selling a security, commodity for future delivery, security-based swap, or swap, on or through the facilities of a national securities exchange or from or through a broker or dealer, while in possession of material, nonpublic information obtained by reason of employment in the House.
House Republican Conference Summary
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
