Congressional Update from U.S. Congressman Andy Barr

President Biden Issues First Veto on my ESG Bill


On Monday, President Biden vetoed my legislation which passed with bipartisan, bicameral support. This legislation would have blocked the U.S. Department of Labor’s rule greenlighting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing in employer-sponsored retirement plans. I joined Fox and Friends to discuss the importance of this legislation. Senator Mike Braun and I wrote an op-ed in the Washington Examiner discussing the President’s veto that can be read here.
