Wyden Statement on House Passage of the SECURE Act

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement on House passage of the SECURE Act: 

“The House of Representatives today approved long overdue legislation to address the retirement crisis and make it easier for employers to offer plans to their workers. Importantly, Democrats also fixed a disastrous policy in the Republican tax bill that resulted in Gold Star families, students and Native American tribes being taxed like millionaires. The House-passed legislation is very similar to the Senate bill and I’m working with Chairman Grassley to get legislation signed into law as soon as possible.”
