As the retirement bill’s chances of passing during the 115th lame duck session waned with the Senate action on Wednesday, a new retirement bill was introduced, giving further indication that retirement policy will be prioritized in the next session of Congress in 2019. (Photo: Shutterstock)

Update: After this article went to press, the House voted to pass a continuing resolution that includes the Retirement Security & Savings Act by a 217-185 margin. The CR also includes $5.7 billion for border security, making it unlikely it will reach the 60-vote threshold needed to pass out of the Senate.
