Update on Social Security Fairness Act

Currently, H.R. 141 by U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis-Illinois has 185 co-sponsors. We are pleased to report that all six of Louisiana’s U.S. Representatives have co-sponsored the bill.

GovTrack.us, a site that tracks and publishes the status of federal legislation, provides insight to the prognosis of H.R. 141. Click this link to learn more: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/116/hr141?fbclid=IwAR1IuL5OhzvRdGDFsUqKu5iyHSWar6zRvlh73_FirLsHeZEoW8X48myZM6w

Although this bill remains stagnant, we are encouraged by the attention WEP/GPO repeal bills have received in the last three years. We will continue to monitor H.R. 141 and provide updates as we receive them. LRTA is also monitoring S.521, a Congressional bill similar to H.R. 141. To date, none of Louisiana’s U.S. Senators have cosponsored the bill.
