WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) released the following statement from IRI Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lee Covington in response to the official announcement of Preston Rutledge’s nomination to serve as the Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA).
