The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed to delay the applicability date of its fiduciary rule by 60 days.  The new compliance date and the beginning of the transition period under the proposed delay is June 9th. Even with a delay, numerous questions remain and nobody knows for sure what June 9th will bring.
