It is important to continue outreach to Congressional offices to urge support of the Butch Lewis Act (HR 4444/ S. 2147). HR 4444/ S. 2147 is the only plan that will provide a path to financial health for troubled pension plans, alleviate pressure on the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and ensure that retirees and future retirees receive all of the benefits that they earned.
