"Follows Portman-Cardin Tradition"

WASHINGTON -- Americans would be able to save more for retirement and have more control over their savings under new pension legislation introduced today by Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD). The Cardin bill "follows the Portman-Cardin tradition by giving Americans new savings opportunities, strengthening and expanding the employer-sponsored retirement system, and offering important new protections to workers participating in retirement savings plans."

Rep. Cardin stressed: "I want to continue the progress we've made since the 2001 pension reform bill. This new bill provides Americans with even greater savings opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone," said Rep. Cardin, a member of the Ways & Means Committee.

In 2001, Reps. Cardin and Portman had enacted into law their Comprehensive Retirement Security and Pension Reform Act.
