"As of Wednesday afternoon, the DOL delay proposal was not included on the OMB's regulatory review list. It could be posted on Thursday morning.

A DOL spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.

The postponement of the rule is commensurate with the delays that were sought by financial industry opponents of the rule, some of whom asked for an 18-month time-out." - InvestmentNews
