(Reuters) – The head of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday said he plans to introduce legislation that would ban ownership of individual stocks by Federal Reserve officials in the aftermath of revelations that two reserve bank presidents had been active investors.

Jerome Powell was informed by Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown, of Ohio that he intends to present the legislation during a Brown hearing to examine actions taken by Treasury and the Fed to protect the economy from the coronavirus pandemic.
