Peter J. Henning, JD Biography
||Professor of Law at Wayne State University Law School
||Con to the question "Should Insider Trading by Congress Be Allowed?"
"Members of Congress and their staff should be prohibited from trading on information related to the status of pending legislation and other policy initiatives by Congress. This type of information is just as important to the markets as internal corporate information, such as earnings or possible acquisitions. It is appalling that Congress does not explicitly prohibit such trading."
