CANTON, Ohio — This week, Congressman Jim Renacci (R-OH) sat down with employers from across Ohio who contribute to the Central States Pension Fund.
At the roundtable, discussions concentrated on employers’ concerns related to the fund’s pending insolvency and working to develop solutions to address the crisis.
“I was pleased to have the opportunity to sit down with employers in my district who contribute to the Central States Pension Fund and discuss solutions that will stave off the pending insolvency of this major pension fund,” said Renacci. “It is important that Congress not play politics with this issue and focus on finding a real, bipartisan solution that takes into consideration the impact on retirees, active employees, employers, and the American taxpayer. Today’s conversation focused on the challenges businesses face who contribute to these failing pension plans and solutions that can pass Congress.”
