ASA Supports Bipartisan, Bicameral Introduction of CRA Resolution on DOL Fiduciary Rule



WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Securities Association (ASA) today issued the following statement from President & CEO Chris Iacovella on the bipartisan, bicameral introduction of Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Retirement Security Rule:

 

“We commend Senators Ted Budd (R-NC), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Congressman Rick Allen (R-GA) for introducing resolutions to permanently protect retirement savers and investors from losing access to important retirement savings options. The DOL’s rushed rulemaking conflicts with existing securities regulations and will create unnecessary confusion for hardworking Americans trying to save for retirement. ASA will continue to work with our members and Members of Congress to protect the interest of America’s investors.”

 

On May 15th, ASA joined 12 trade associations in sending letters of support to the U.S. House and U.S. Senate, urging congressional action in order to protect America’s workers and retirees from the DOL’s Retirement Security Rule.
