Paul Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s husband, made a stock purchase of over $1 million in a computer chip company just weeks before a potential vote in congress which would give a massive subsidy to the industry.

Mr. Pelosi made a purchase of between $1 million and $5 million shares of Nvidia, which is a semiconductor company, according to a disclosure filing made by Pelosi’s office. He exercised 200 call options, or 20,000 shares, the disclosure states.

Reuters reported that the Senate could vote on a bill that contains billions of dollars in subsidies within the semiconductor industry as early as Tuesday. 

The bill could send as much as $52 billion in chip subsidies as well as tax credits in order to increase competitiveness with China.

“It certainly raises the specter that Paul Pelosi could have access to some insider legislative information,” Holman said. “This is the reason why there is a stock trading app that exclusively monitors Paul’s trading activity and then its followers do likewise.”

The disclosure also shows that Mr. Pelosi sold shares of Apple and Visa.
