Local Government Retirement Plans Disapproval – Passage


Passage of the joint resolution that would disapprove and nullify a Labor Department rule that exempts local government-administered retirement savings plans for non-government workers from certain federal restrictions and requirements for pension plans. Under the rule, to qualify for the exemption, a city or county must have a population at least as large as the least-populated state in the nation and must administer a retirement plan for its own employees.
