Treasurer Stacy Garrity, Rep. Tracy Pennycuick and Rep. Michael Driscoll announced the upcoming introduction of a bill to create Keystone Saves, a retirement savings program for hardworking Pennsylvanians who do not have access to retirement savings through their employer.They were joined at the announcement by supporters in the General Assembly and representatives of AARP, the United Way of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Health Care Association, and the Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture. Other supporters of Keystone Saves include The Pew Charitable Trusts and the Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs."More than two million Pennsylvanians don't have access to retirement savings plans through their jobs," Treasurer Garrity said. "We're talking about people we all know - hairstylists and barbers, truckers and mechanics, our favorite waitresses and bartenders. They work hard every day without an easy way to save for the future of their families. Keystone Saves is a simple, effective - and business-friendly - way to help them save more. It tackles a problem that we absolutely must solve."
