The deadline for members of Congress to file their annual financial disclosures for 2021 was May 16.

But as usual, most members availed themselves of a 90-day extension that will give them until sometime in August to release their reports.

In the Senate, just 23 senators filed their 2021 annual disclosures by the deadline.

Two senators, Democrats John Hickenlooper of Colorado and Gary Peters of Michigan, filed periodic transaction reports (PTRs) on May 16, 2022, for transactions they made in 2021.

According to a tally maintained by Business Insider, at least 60 other senators and representatives have failed to report their trades in accordance with the law.

The second-term Peters has considerable influence over whether the Senate will move this year to limit stock transactions or ownership by its members.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia are among its co-sponsors. »
