On September 26 the U.S. Senate unanimously approved a resolution supporting the goals and ideals of National Retirement Security Week (NRSW). The bipartisan resolution, S. Res. 654, was introduced by Sen. Michael Enzi (R-Wyo.) and cosponsored by Sens. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Susan Collins (R-Me.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Doug Jones (D-Ala.), Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.). Securing passage of the NRSW resolution by the Senate is one of NAGDCA’s legislative priorities for 2018.
In the resolution, the Senate calls on states, local governments, school districts, universities, nonprofit organizations, businesses and others to observe NRSW during the week of October 21-27, 2018, "…with appropriate programs and activities, with the goal of increasing the retirement savings and personal financial literacy of all people in the United States, thereby enhancing the retirement security of the people of the United States."
