    Congratulations, STOCK Act. You'll Be a Law!

    This is both good news for the public and good news for traders/investors. It's missing some components that I would have liked to see pass through (more in the article), but with so little accomplished for the people these days and rampant partisanship, I'm glad to see this get done.

    Now, hopefully Obama will sign it.

    Well, it's ONLY Illegal now? We shouldn't stop here. It sounds too good to be true, but we need proof that it works. We need to see congress members thrown in jail for their actions. They only passed this because of their approval ratings.

    We need enforcement!
    All the republicans were against this and had it watered down so there are loopholes and where they can't actually get in trouble. They will get rich one way or another. We need to find better ways to throw them in the slammer.

    It's a feel good thing...
    I wonder who will monitor it.
    Who will enforce it...
    Everyone will be focusing on other things
    24 hrs after this is signed into law.
    Just another thing for Obama to pat himself
    on the back for.

    Oh, jeezus. I should known someone would turn this bill into partisanship. The bill got overwhelming support from both sides. Read the bill.

    I have a feeling there is a backdoor to this bill. I just don't see the politicians giving this crime up with such bipartisanship.

    I have no doubt that there's a few slippery slopes.

    STOCK Act passes Congress, heads to Obama’s desk

    So is using the word "hopefully" in thread title, as if there were an actual question.

    He hasn't signed it yet. Therefore it is still in question on whether it is signed. Period.
