Congressional Disapproval of OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard on COVID-19 Vaccinations -- S.J.Res. 29 (12/8/2021)

In issuing an Emergency Temporary Standards, OSHA exceeded the authority granted to it by Congress in 1970. As such, NRF urges Congress to support this resolution. If successful, the resolution would appropriately rescind an unworkable standard that the Administration cannot implement for its own employees.The ETS, one of the most far-reaching and aggressive rules in OSHA’s five decades of existence, was promulgated — without public notice and comment — under Section 6 ( c ) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Retailers have prioritized the safety of employees and customers since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the Key Vote letter here. NRF POSITION: SUPPORT

S. 1720, Postal Service Reform Act -- Co-Sponsorship

The bill includes several longstanding efforts intended to address the Postal Service’s financial situation, such as repealing the requirement to prefund retiree health benefits and integrating postal retirees into Medicare.

S. 659, DRIVE Safe Act -- Co-Sponsorship

The average age of a commercial truck driver is 55, leading to driver shortages that is harming commerce and economic growth for the retail and restaurant community. This legislation will allow more people to pursue a career in the transportation industry by implementing an apprenticeship program for licensed commercial drivers under the age of 21.

S. 3580, the Ocean Shipping Reform Act -- Co-Sponsorship

The Ocean Shipping Reform Act would put in place common sense reforms to address long-standing issues in the maritime shipping industry, which have been further highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Shipping Act has not been updated in more than twenty years; however, the industry has changed significantly in that time. The law needs to be updated to reflect 21st century global maritime trade. NRF POSITION: SUPPORT

case basis, from all Section 301 tariffs on imports from China. Click here to read the letter. NRF POSITION: SUPPORT.
