Legislation introduced Thursday by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., would impose a 0.03% tax beginning in 2014 on non-consumer financial trading, including stocks, bonds and other debts after their initial issuance, and would include derivative contracts, options, puts, forward contracts and swaps.
