Three House members introduced a resolution Tuesday that would kill the Labor Department’s recently finalized rule on investment advice for retirement accounts.
Reps. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., Charles Boustany, R-La., and Ann Wagner, R-Mo., offered the measure under a law, the Congressional Review Act, that allows Congress to halt a rule within 60 legislative days of its release.
The final version of the controversial DOL measure, which requires financial advisers to 401(k) and individual retirement accounts to act in clients’ best interests, was launched April 6 and published in the Federal Register on April 8.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
