Floor Update: Dec 5, 2019 - 2:14 pm
The House is now taking the following votes on H.R. 2534 – Insider Trading Prohibition Act:
  1. Huizenga Amendment – Replaces the bill’s standard of illegal insider trading while “aware of” material nonpublic information with trading while “using” material nonpublic information. This narrower standard is inconsistent with current law, would severely weaken the bill, and would create substantial enforcement hurdles to the benefit of insiders and detriment of the SEC, which would have to prove that the reason the defendant traded was because of a specific piece of information – 15 minutes
  2. Final Passage of H.R. 2534 – Insider Trading Prohibition Act (Rep. Himes – Financial Services) – VOTE YES – 5 minutes

    The House will then take the following votes: 

  3. Motion on Ordering the Previous Question on the Rule (H.Res. 741) – VOTE YES 5 minutes
  4. H.Res. 741 – Combined Rule Providing for Consideration of H.Res. 326 – Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding United States efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a negotiated two-state solution and H.R. 4 – Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019 VOTE YES 5 minutes
These are the last votes for the day
