Oh yes, oversight ...


 How could I overlook the possible impact of the shift in power in the Congress on Congressional oversight mission, and, in turn, the possible impact of Congressional oversight on the world of employee benefits? If nothing else, we're less likely to see a resurrection of the Department of Energy's announcement that it would not reimburse contractors for defined benefit plan costs, or for the cost of more than a minimal health coverage package.

Where else do you think Congressional oversight might affect agencies' approach to benefit regulation?
