Stapleton Issues Statement on Inclusion in Retirement Savings Task Force
 
DENVER – Treasurer Walker Stapleton issued the following statement after House Bill 1377 was amended to put him on a task force set to study Coloradans retirement savings:
 
“It is good to see Democrats have a change of heart on this issue and enhance the diversity of opinions on their task force.  However, having a seat on the task force does not change my concerns about its premise, and I will work to ensure that its recommendations do not impose further mandates on Colorado businesses.”
 
House Bill 1377, which was introduced just last week, requires the task force to make recommendations for the establishment of a state run retirement plan for private sector employees – a move that Stapleton strongly opposes
