Press Release: ASA Applauds House Passage of SECURE Act to Strengthen Retirement System

WASHINGTON – The American Securities Association (ASA) today applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE Act) by a vote of 417-3 and called on the U.S. Senate to quickly act to strengthen America’s retirement system.

“The ASA is so pleased that, in today’s political climate with such heated rhetoric, the House came together with a big bipartisan vote to help address America’s retirement security crisis and make it easier for working families to save and invest for the future,” said ASA CEO Chris Iacovella. “This type of bipartisan problem solving is what America needs more of, and we urge the Senate to quickly take-up the SECURE Act and send this much-needed legislation to the President’s desk.”

Last month, ASA released its 2019 Retirement Security Agenda, outlining its support for a range of policies to enhance America’s retirement security including many featured in the SECURE Act. To read ASA”s full retirement agenda, click here.
