ALEXANDER PRAISES PASSAGE OF PENSIONS BILL

Posted on August 4, 2006

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) made the following statement after the Senate passed the Pensions Protection Act, H.R. 4, late Thursday night: “This bill protects thousands of workers in Tennessee so that the pensions they earn will be there when they retire. It’s a simple issue of making sure employers make good on the promises they’ve made by fully funding their pension plans instead of handing the bill to taxpayers.”
