Sen. Jon Ossoff, D-GA, introduced a bill with Sen. Mark Kelly, D-AZ, which would require members of Congress, their spouses and dependent children to place their portfolios into blind trusts while in office. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-KS, dropped a similar bill, though his version would not ban dependent children from trading.

“Members of Congress should not be playing the stock market while we make federal policy and have extraordinary access to confidential information,” Ossoff said in a press release, which says that he and Kelly have both placed their own portfolios into blind trusts.


Both sides of the house have bills to stop trading, democrats did it first. Hawleys bill doesn't go as far as the first bill.
