New Reports Show the Wealth in Congress
Posted at 9:50 a.m. on June 14
After a healthy year for investments in the stock market, the personal financial reports of members of Congress are expected to show solid improvements in the wealth of members. Personal financial wealth reports of U.S. representatives were made public this morning, providing the public with a general view of the assets and income of their elected representatives.
The reports show investments, outside income, and other assets of the family, including any spouse or dependent children. The dollar amounts are listed in broad ranges.
The public reports are required of top officials in the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. They were to be filed on May 15. The Clerk of the House released to the public this morning the reports filed by U.S. representatives. About four dozen members were granted extensions to file by a later date, but none beyond 90 days, or Aug. 13.
