ICYMI: Senator Lummis Speaks at Press Conference Pushing Back on Biden ESG Rule

March 2, 2023

U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) participated in a press conference hosted by U.S. Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) to unveil a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution of disapproval of the Biden administration’s attempts to politicize the retirement savings of the hardworking people of Wyoming. Yesterday, the Senate voted to pass this resolution 51-45.

“When it comes to their retirement accounts, people in Wyoming are looking for a good store of value. They are looking for a good return on investment. They are not looking for funds to prioritize political inclinations. This is investment malpractice, pure and simple,” said Sen. Lummis. “I am grateful for Senator Braun’s work to bring attention to these attempts by the Biden administration to insert their progressive priorities over the financial well-being of retirees.” 

In addition to cosponsoring Senator Braun’s CRA, Senator Lummis also wrote an op-ed in The Washington Times calling out the Biden administration’s ESG initiatives at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Department of Labor.
