NAIFA supports the newly introduced Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution disapproving the DOL’s final fiduciary-only rule that will negatively impact and impose new costs on middle- and low-income savers, as well as financial services professionals. CEO Kevin Mayeux, CAE, sent letters personally thanking Representative Rick Allen and Senators Roger Marshall, Joe Manchin, Ted Budd, and Bill Cassidy for introducing the resolution in the House and Senate, respectively. ACLI, NAIFA, Finseca, IRI and NAFA also issued a joint release supporting the CRA review.

In a statement, NAIFA CEO Kevin Mayeux said: “The Department of Labor failed to learn its lesson when its very similar 2016 fiduciary-only rule failed in the face of a lawsuit brought by NAIFA and others. The current rule will harm the very people the DOL claims to want to protect – low- and middle-income savers – by depriving them of retirement-planning products and services. Financial professionals are required by the SEC’s Regulation Best Interest and annuity-transaction rules and laws in place in 45 states to serve consumers’ best interests. The DOL has decided to ignore these robust protections and impose an additional layer of restrictions on consumers and financial professionals. We thank Representative Allen and Senators Budd, Cassidy, Manchin, and Marshall for their leadership and urge Congress to adopt the CRA resolution.”
