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.

The value of their products was evidenced by the volume of questions from the attendees. Stacy Chitty, Managing Partner, did an excellent job of explaining the history, strategy and value of Blue Vault data.
