We need to make sure the Senate finishes the job!
The House of Representatives passed the American Rescue Plan with the Butch Lewis Emergency Pension Plan Relief Act of 2021. This wouldn’t have been possible without the voices of thousands of members like you who sent emails and made calls to your representatives.
The Senate is scheduled to vote in the coming days, and President Biden has pledged to sign the bill.
We negotiated for and earned our pensions. The Butch Lewis EPPRA of 2021 is intended to address the severe financial challenges confronting thousands of multiemployer plans across the nation. As written, this legislation will provide vital relief for decades, without the need for benefit reductions.
Together, we can make sure the Senate passes the American Rescue Plan that delivers real relief for all Americans and protects our pensions.
