Why We Oppose HB 1463

Posted by Tom Mellish, Executive Director, IRTA on Feb 15, 2017 3:33:14 PM


Dear Friends and Members:

HB 1463 “Defined Contribution Only Option Plan” was heard by the Employment, Labor and Pension Committee yesterday. No vote was taken, just testimony. No one testified in favor or the bill, however the bill will probably be brought back next Tuesday morning for a vote.
