FSI Applauds House’s Passage of the SECURE Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Financial Services Institute (FSI) President & CEO Dale Brown released the following statement regarding the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act:
“We applaud the House for taking this important step to advance retirement security for Main Street Americans. Too many Americans have inadequate retirement savings, but the SECURE Act takes steps to address this crisis. It will help expand workplace retirement savings opportunities and allow individuals to save for retirement for as long as they are working. We urge the Senate to take up this critical legislation and pass it as soon as possible.”
