You won’t believe this (well, yes you probably will). From The Hill on Friday:
With little fanfare, the House quickly voted Friday to repeal a financial transparency requirement for senior government officials, which was part of a much-heralded government transparency bill last year.
Members passed S. 716 by unanimous consent, with no debate and no description on the floor about what the bill would do. The Senate passed it in the same fashion on Thursday.
The bill amends the Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, which was passed last year on the heels of complaints that members of Congress and senior officials are using their government knowledge to enrich themselves through stock trades or other actions.

OF COURSE your elected government servants are working to limit transparency. Anything that would inhibit their ability to raise revenue by the power of their position must not be tolerated. Don’t you feel like a sucker?
