Day on Capitol Hill attendees talked with their members of Congress about the potentially harmful fiduciary rule proposed by the Department of Labor and the effects that this rule could have on the access that middle and low-income savers have to education and advice.
“I met with each of the legislators or their legislative assistants” said Knudson “It’s so important to make these contacts on Capitol Hill and to share with our Representatives and Senators how important the insurance and financial services that we provide to our clients are to families, our communities and our country’s economy.”
