Rollback of Obama-era Labor Department rule muddies PA plans to develop private retirement security plans

Just this past Wednesday, the US Senate voted 50-49 to roll back an Obama-era Department of Labor rule that allows cities and counties to develop retirement security plans for private-sector employees not already benefiting from an employer-run plan.
