President Signs Amendment to Extend STOCK Act August 31st Posting Deadline to September 30th
August 17, 2012

Subsection 11(a)(1) the STOCK Act (Public Law 112 – 105) requires that by August 31, 2012, financial disclosure forms filed pursuant to title I of the Ethics in Government Act in calendar year 2012, and in subsequent years, be made available to the public on the official websites of the respective executive branch agencies not later than 30 days after such forms were filed. Section 1 of S. 3510 amends subsection 11(a)(1) of the STOCK Act by striking the August 31, 2012, date and inserting September 30, 2012. The extension applies to only the posting on the internet of OGE Form 278 reports and periodic transaction reports (OGE Form 278-T). S.3510 does not delay any other requirements of the STOCK Act, including the filing of periodic transaction reports, which became effective on July 3, 2012.
