Momentum Building in Congress to Restore Our Pension Plan

     Updated Tuesday, 24 August 2021
August 23, 2021Response from The Treasury (obo The PBGC Board) — tells DSRA to "go ask Congress, not us" — 28 congressmen are told in a letter from the Treasury Department that "The Departments of Treasury, Labor and Commerce concluded that Congressional action would be required to restore these lost pension benefits. Therefore, we have not taken further steps on this issue."
July 20, 202128 Members of the U.S. House Representatives — 11 Democrats and 17 Republicans in whose congressional districts live a considerable number of Delphi salaried retirees — send a letter to the Secretaries of Commerce, Labor and Treasury — the trio from President Biden’s cabinet comprise the PBGC board of directors.  The letter is almost identical to the letter from eight U.S. senators sent on June 10.  The letter presses the Executive Branch of government to act on President Trump’s directive of last October.  It says in part, "We understand this review was due on January 20, 2021 – before you assumed your current roles … we ask you to provide us with an update on the status of the report.  Specifically, we ask you to inform us when work on this report commenced, when you expect this report to be completed, and when Congress can expect to receive a copy for review."
