Study: Boehner, Cantor Get Most from Securities and Investment Industry

February 9, 2012
Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are the top two House recipients of campaign contributions from securities and investment interest groups, according to a MapLight analysis.

From July 2009 through June 2011, interest groups representing the securities and investment industry gave $11.37 million to Republican House members and $7.41 million to Democratic House members, according to the analysis. Boehner received $830,700 and Cantor $629,350. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took in $157,800 and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer $136,150.

The House version of the STOCK Act, which passed Thursday, did not include a Senate provision that would require political intelligence professionals to register under the Lobbying Disclosure Act, an amendment that the financial industry opposes. Republican House leaders removed that language from the bill earlier this week, and now the differences between the two chambers' versions must be worked out.
