With Lynda Galligan, Scott Webster
Congress approved a major pension reform bill (the Pension Protection Act of 2006 - H.R. 4), which the President is expected to sign in the near future. Once signed by the President, the pension reform bill will amend many provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA"), including the socalled "plan assets regulation" issued by the Department of Labor.
