National Academy of Public Administration Releases Report on STOCK Act
April 1, 2013

On March 28, 2013, in accordance with section 2 of Public Law 112-178, the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) submitted an independent study on the impact of the STOCK Act to Congress and the President of the United States. The five-member Panel of Fellows that conducted the study made the following recommendation:

Congress should indefinitely suspend the online posting requirements that are due April 15, 2013, and the unrestricted access to searchable, sortable, downloadable databases, currently planned for October 2013, while continuing implementation of other requirements of the STOCK Act.
