AARP Colorado Volunteers Head to Washington to Push for Better Retirement Investment Advice Standard
Washington, DC – Today AARP Colorado volunteers and staff dropped off petitions containing more than 26,000 signatures at the U.S. Department of Labor in support of a conflict of interest standard, following the release of a proposed rule earlier this month. The petition delivery kicks off several days of action in Washington that includes visits to U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner and Colorado members of the U.S. House of Reps.
