A BILL

To amend title 5, United States Code, to provide that sums in the Thrift Savings Fund may not be invested in securities that are listed on certain foreign exchanges, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Taxpayers and Savers Protection Act” or the “TSP Act”.

SEC. 2. Investment of Thrift Savings Fund.

Section 8438 of title 5, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

“(i) (1) In this subsection—

“(A) the term ‘PCAOB’ means the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board; and

“(B) the term ‘registered public accounting firm’ has the meaning given the term in section 2(a) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (15 U.S.C. 7201(a)).

“(2) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, no sums in the Thrift Savings Fund may be invested in any security that is listed on an exchange in a jurisdiction in which the PCAOB—

“(A) has never conducted an inspection or investigation of a registered public accounting firm under section 104 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (15 U.S.C. 7214); and

“(B) is prevented from conducting a complete inspection or investigation described in subparagraph (A) because of a position taken by an authority in that jurisdiction, as determined by the PCAOB.

“(3) The Board shall consult with the Securities and Exchange Commission on a biennial basis in order to ensure compliance with paragraph (2).”.
