U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao highlights accomplishments in reforming employee benefits system

WASHINGTON — Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao told attendees at "DOL Speaks: The 2008 Employee Benefits Conference" in Washington that the Bush Administration has strengthened the ability of employers to deliver retirement and health benefit security for their workers and their families.

"This administration succeeded in enacting the most sweeping reforms of retirement plan rules in over three decades," said Secretary Chao. "Our initiatives will boost participation in retirement funds and empower workers, retirees and their families with more useful information on the management of their funds and investment strategies."
