Thatís an opinion piece by a guest writer and makes no comment about the current status of the legislation in the Senate.

If you go to www.Congress.gov you can see the status of any current bill. The SECURE Act is H.R.1994. You can even sign up for status notifications.

That is the current operative fact. Speculation as to why it does not say "approved by senate" is really of no use to me. It will or it won't; that's the only thing I need to know.
