Trump mania

EDITOR: Trump Mania has swept the nation and is infecting El Dorado County. Many letters question Trump’s legitimacy, predicting the end of life as we know it.

Multisociety letter on immigration

EDITOR: Among many reactions to the White House executive order on visas and immigration there is one that should be highlighted.

Delay the DOL Fiduciary Rule

EDITOR: Please ask President Trump to delay the Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule. The annuity industry is working hard to comply with the rule by April 10 but there are still hundreds of questions the department has yet to answer.
