Senators Push for Vote on Secure Act Retirement Bill
October 23, 2019 by Melanie Waddell
Republican senators are urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (Secure) Act up for an immediate vote.
In a Tuesday letter to McConnell, Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., pressed for immediate Senate consideration of the bipartisan bill, which was passed the House by a 417-3 vote on May 23.
Scott was joined by Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine; Joni Ernst, R-Iowa; Cory Gardner, R-Colo.; Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Martha McSally, R-Ariz.; and Thom Tillis, R-N.C.
The Secure Act “will make significant strides in fixing the nation’s retirement crisis and helping workers of all ages invest and save for their futures,” the senators wrote.
