Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s new reform bill would ban members of Congress from owning individual stocks

That's the headline of this article by Kevin Breuninger's piece. Here are the key take-aways of Breuninger's piece:

  • Sen Warren proposes a new bill that would ban members of Congress and the White House staff from owning individual stocks.
  • As an apparent alternative, the legislation would create "conflict-free investment opportunities for federal officials with new investment accounts."
  • While the measure is unlikely to pass the Senate as long as Republicans hold majority control of the chamber, it comes amid speculation that Warren could run for president in 2020.
