National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems

The Voice for Public Pensions

2017 Congressional Review Act

NCPERS believes that retirement security should be a national priority. We also believe retirement security for ALL Americans lies in a partnership between the states and private sectors.

The U.S. Senate could vote as soon as this week on S.J. RES. 32 & 33 (passed the House as H.J. Res. 66 & 67) that would severely hinder states' ability to offer retirement savings plans for people who don't have access through their employer.

So why is Congress trying to block ordinary Americans from gaining access to a retirement savings plan?

Copy and paste this email and write your Senator today and tell them to vote NO on S.J. RES. 32 & 33. Find our who your Senator is here



Dear Senator XXX,

I am writing to ask you to vote NO on S.J. RES. 32 & 33 (passed the House as H.J. Res. 66 & 67) to disapprove state Secure Choice retirement plans. 

States have come up with programs that combine the best of public- and private sector approaches, based on years of research and study. California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington have already enacted legislation to help private- sector employers automatically enroll their employees in Secure Choice retirement plans. 

Please DO NOT stop the progress states are making to provide retirement security to working Americans.
