H.J.Res. 88: Disapproving the rule submitted by the Department of Labor relating to the definition of the term "Fiduciary".

Title: Disapproving the rule submitted by the Department of Labor relating to the definition of the term "Fiduciary".

Introduced: Apr 19, 2016 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: Rep. David "Phil" P. Roe [R-TN1]

Status: Vetoed & Override Failed in House - Motion to refer the bill and accompanying veto message to the Committee on Education and the Workforce. The Chair directed the Clerk to notify the Senate of the action of the House.

Summary: (This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary of that version is repeated here.) This joint resolution disapproves and nullifies a Department of Labor rule published on April 8, 2016, relating to the definition of the term "fiduciary" and the conflict of interest rule with respect to retirement investment advice. (The rule defines who is a fiduciary with respect to pension and retirement plans. Under current law, a person who provides investment advice has a fiduciary obligation that requires the person to provide advice in the sole interest of plan participants and beneficiaries. The rule changes the definition of "investment advice" to treat people who provide investment advice to pension and retirement plans for a fee or other compensation as fiduciaries in a wider array of advice relationships.)
