Labor Delays Fiduciary Rule

The Department of Labor yesterday adopted a rule delaying the April 10 effective date of its “Fiduciary Rule” for 60 days.  The delay gives Labor time to complete the re-study mandated by Trump’s February executive order.

DOL could only delay the Rule through a formal rule making process. It did so, even though public comments ran 12:1 against delay. It will need further formal rule making for any other changes.
