Massachusetts U.S. Senator Scott Brown Out to Stop Insider Trading in Congress

Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown has introduced legislation to stop insider trading among members of Congress, who are currently thought to be exempt from the practice.

Senator Brown says he was surprised to learn that insider trading by members of Congress, their families, or staff using non-public information gained through their Congressional work is not clearly prohibited by law. Brown testified in Washington D.C. before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs.
