Amends the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) to provide that investment managers under ERISA shall include fiduciaries registered solely under State law only if Federal registration is prohibited under the Investment Advisors Act of 1940. Treats a fiduciary as meeting certain ERISA filing requirements if the information is available to the Secretary of Labor from a centralized electronic or other record-keeping database.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
