Lesser Praises Passage Of Bill
Disclosure Of Conflict In Retirement Planning
Rep. Matthew Lesser (D-Middletown) on Thursday praised the House unanimous passage of legislation that would require companies administering municipal plans to disclose their fee ratios and conflicts of interest.
“The Connecticut House of Representatives took an important step towards reforming the 403(b) industry this afternoon,” Lesser said. “With a unanimous vote, the House is sending a message that Connecticut teachers should be told about fees and conflicts of interests prior to being sold voluntary retirement products. This is a big deal for any teacher planning to save for retirement.”
