Part 1: Healthcare Initiatives

In the first hour we reviewed the healthcare initiatives of the newly elected President and Congress. Kathy Bakich provided comments on the Supreme Court case to be argued on November 10. 


Part 2: Retirement Plans

In our second hour, we turned to retirement plans. Serena Simons talked about the likelihood of multiemployer reform legislation and single-employer funding relief in the lame-duck session and the new Congress in 2021.

She also discussed the SECURE Act 2.0; a bipartisan bill released in the House on October 27, and what to expect in the next Congress depending on the election results.
