When Congress passes legislation, it often requires government agencies to issue rules interpreting important aspects of the new laws. The agencies are required to publish their proposed regulations and to invite the public to comment on them. They also often hold hearings where anyone can ask to speak. When the agencies issue their final regulations, these are also published.
Below is a listing of recent regulatory activities related to the private retirement system.
