Wagner Applauds Administration on Fiduciary Rule Delay

Feb 3, 2017

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO-02) released the below statement after President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order to delay the implementation of the Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule:

“Today is a great day for low- and middle-income American families. I applaud President Trump’s executive order to delay the Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule, listening to the concerns of everyday Americans and protecting their ability to access retirement investment advice. This delay will allow the Administration to potentially repeal the rule entirely, and within this time, I will continue working toward a permanent, legislative solution in Congress to help preserve investment choice, access and affordability while ensuring all families are receiving investment advice that is truly in their best interest.”

NOTE: Congresswoman Wagner was in attendance as President Trump signed the Executive Order in the Oval Office.
