On October 24, 2019, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved a resolution supporting the goals and ideals of National Retirement Security Week (NRSW). The bipartisan resolution, S.Res. 380, was introduced by Sen. Michael Enzi (R-Wyo.) and cosponsored by Sens. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Todd Young (R-Ind.), Doug Jones (D-Ala.), Susan Collins (R-Me.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.). Securing passage of the NRSW resolution by the Senate is one of NAGDCA’s legislative priorities for 2019.
In the resolution, the Senate calls on states, localities, schools, universities, nonprofit organizations, businesses and others to observe NRSW during the week of October 20 through October 26, 2019, “… 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.”
