Senator’s Financial Freedom Act would ensure Bitcoin can be in your 401(k)

Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville from Alabama has unveiled a new bill he calls the Financial Freedom Act to allow Americans to add cryptocurrency to their 401(k) retirement savings plan unencumbered by regulatory guidance.

The new bill is Tuberville’s response to the United States Department of Labor’s (DOL) push to potentially keep crypto out of 401(k) investment plans due to its perceived potential for risk to investors. As Cointelegraph previously reported, the DOL said employees who choose to invest in crypto through their 401(k) could attract legal attention.
