A new plan is being proposed in the Senate that would raise taxes on your retirement by 10% and place additional detrimental fees on the entire plan.  This is to "rescue" other pension plans that have already been affected.  You can see International President Lonnie Stephenson's statement here.  Please contact your Senators and tell them to stop this proposal and protect your hard earned retirement benefits.
