25 States Sue Biden Admin Over Rule Allowing 401(k) Managers To Put Savings Into ESG Funds

•, by Tyler Durden

The new rule set to take effect on Jan. 30 allows 401(k) managers to invest clients' money in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) funds, a move that 25 states argue violates the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).

According to the lawsuit, the rule puts at risk the retirement savings accounts of 152 million workers, or two-thirds of the U.S. population, totaling $12 trillion in assets, in the name of promoting the Biden administration's climate agenda.

It does this, the states argue, by making changes to the rule that authorizes fund managers (fiduciaries) to consider and promote "nonpecuniary benefits" (benefits not related to money or financial gain) when making investment decisions.
