Treasurer Pearce made the following Statement in response to Governor Scott signing S.135

08 June 2017

Treasurer Pearce made the following Statement in response to Governor Scott signing S.135:

“S.135 authorizes the Treasurer’s Office to implement the Green Mountain Secure Retirement Plan, a retirement program for Vermonters who lack access to employer-sponsored savings plans. This voluntary program will expand opportunity for more Vermont citizens to be better prepared for retirement, strengthening the economic vitality of our state. I look forward to working with businesses, and other stakeholders, to implement a program that works for all Vermonters. I applaud Speaker Mitzi Johnson, President Pro Tempore Tim Ashe, the Chairs of the House and Senate Economic Development Committees, and other legislators who worked hard to pass this initiative during the legislative session. I also want to thank Governor Scott and his Administration for supporting this proposal as it advanced into law. Every Vermonter should have the opportunity to achieve a lifetime of financial wellbeing – this law moves the Green Mountain Secure Retirement Plan one step closer to achieving that goal.”
