7 Possible Obstacles to Secure Act Bliss

Some life and annuity groups’ lobbyists may be starting to think about which brand of champagne they ought to try when the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (Secure Act) becomes law.
Congressional leaders have put the Secure Act in Division O of House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to House Resolution 1865.
H.R. 1865 began life as a law enforcement commemorative coin act bill. Congress is now using H.R. 1865 as the tugboat for pulling the 1,773-page Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (CAA 2020) through Congress.
Policymakers in Washington see CCA 2020 as a “must pass” piece of legislation: If H.R. 1865 does not become law within the next few days, much of the federal government will shut down on Friday.
