The 2017 Pension Political Power 25: Mike Enzi

< 25 Top Pension Power Players11. Mike EnziChairman, Senate Subcommittee on Primary Health and Retirement Security

As chairman of the Senate subcommittee on primary health and retirement security, Wyoming Republican Mike Enzi is the man to watch regarding any changes to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. and private retirement plans. Last year Enzi introduced the Pension and Budget Integrity Act to take PBGC premiums out of the federal budget process. Supporters say this move will bring accountability to the pension insurance system and make plans more affordable. The act would eliminate incentives for legislators to raise premiums to pay for nonessential items. Enzi, 73, has long fought for retirement security: In 2015, as a member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, he explored using multiemployer plans as retirement savings vehicles for small businesses. — Julie Segal
