U.S. Chamber of Commerce is ‘urging immediate action to undo’ the rule, Thomas Donohue says
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is “already working” with Trump administration transition officials to “undo” the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule, Thomas Donohue, Chamber’s president and CEO, said Monday.
In his Monday blog post, In Your Corner, Donohue said that the Chamber is “urging immediate action to undo” Labor’s fiduciary rule, because “if enacted, it would choke economic growth, increase frivolous litigation against financial advisers and make saving for retirement more difficult for hardworking Americans.”
President-elect Donald Trump, Donohue wrote, “will have the power to quickly undo some of President Obama’s executive orders by issuing executive orders of his own,” but other regulatory reforms will require going through “the lengthier and more complicated rulemaking process.”
The DOL’s rule is one of those.
The well-attended Blue Vault session at the recent National Planning Holdings National Conference was very well received. The value of their products was evidenced by the volume of questions from the attendees. Stacy Chitty, Managing Partner, did an excellent job of explaining the history, strategy and value of Blue Vault data.
