CEO Letter

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Nearly 90 company and trade association CEOs today signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) urging quick action on the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act, HR 1994.

The group includes insurers, local chambers of commerce, firefighter organizations, think tanks, church groups and not-for-profit organizations unified in support for comprehensive retirement security legislation.

The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) is among the groups that signed the letter which urges “…quick action to pass this important bill this year.”

Added IRI President and CEO Wayne Chopus, “The SECURE Act can address serious concerns for American workers who someday hope to achieve a financially secure retirement. Bipartisan support exists to pass it. It’s time we take “yes” for an answer and get this done now.”
