A pension reform bill that would increase retirement savings contribution limits and streamline the process for setting up retirement plans for small businesses will be introduced in the House of Representatives this week, according to Elizabeth Gregory, a spokesperson for The Financial Services Roundtable of Washington, D.C., a financial services company association.

Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) will introduce the bill, the Comprehensive Retirement Security and Pension Reform Act, according to Gregory. The bill passed both houses of Congress last year but the president did not sign it, said Gregory.
