ASA Statement Ahead of Education & Workforce Committee Hearing Examining DOL Policies, Priorities



WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Securities Association (ASA), in advance of today’s U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce hearing, released the following statement from ASA President & CEO Chris Iacovella on Congress’ oversight of the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) policies and priorities:

 

The Labor Department’s rushed fiduciary rulemaking process did nothing but resurrect its 2016 rule from the legal death it suffered 8 years ago. Acting Secretary Su and the Department of Labor are wasting taxpayers’ money adopting an illegal policy that makes it harder for working Americans to save for retirement. ASA commends the Committee for holding this hearing and we look forward to working with Congress to ensure investors and retirees are protected from the all-powerful administrative state.”
