The STOCK Act and Periodic Transaction Reports
 
On April 4, 2012, President Obama signed into law the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act of 2012, Pub. L. No. 112-105 (2012) (STOCK Act). Section 6 of the STOCK Act adds new subsection 103(l) to the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, 5 U.S.C. app. 4, § 101 et seq. (EIGA). Effective July 3, 2012, subsection 103(l) of EIGA requires that not later than 30 days after receiving notification of any transaction required to be reported under subsection 102(a)(5)(B) of EIGA, but in no case later than 45 days after such a transaction, a covered employee must file a report of the transaction.
