Luncheon w Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) and LV Chamber of Commerce

August 21, 2014

Parker ElmoreOn August 20th, I was able to attend a great luncheon with Sen. Heller and the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.  We got to hear Sen. Heller’s views on the current dysfunction in Washington, DC and the appropriate role of the Federal Government (National Defense, Commerce/Infrastructure & Safety Net).  While he discussed the recent highway bill patch (“HAFTA”), he noted that a full highway bill will be required by May 2015 and that revenues will be needed.  Given that pension & retirement plans have recently become a revenue target, that is something on which those in the retirement community (plan sponsors, participants, investment advisors, etc.) will need to focus.
