“President Biden’s first veto protects the hard-earned savings of American workers by allowing retirement fund managers the freedom to make fully informed investment decisions. This includes the responsible consideration of all risk factors, including the risks of climate change, that could influence financial returns. We greatly appreciate the president for supporting these carefully crafted safeguards of our money.”
