Senators who oversee the $700 billion Wall Street rescue package held stocks in many of the banks bailed out towards the end of last year, according to financial disclosure reports released Friday.

The panel has jurisdiction over the bailout fund and other relief efforts directed by federal regulators to save the nation’s financial system.
