Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) said today that he will reintroduce a pension reform bill that was approved by the House last year, but eventually fizzled in the Senate. The legislation is intended to avoid the implosions within individual pension plans that were sparked by the meltdown of Enron, WorldCom and other corporations and resulted in the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars among retirement investors.

Boehner said that, along with Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas), he will introduce, likely later this month, a new version of the Pension Security Act, which will be similar to the version that passed the House last year.
