H.R. 4996, Ocean Shipping Reform Act -- Suspend the Rules and Pass (12/8/2021)

The Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021 (H.R. 4996), 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. Click here to view NRF's Key Vote letter. NRF POSITION: SUPPORT

H.R. 3684, Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act -- Final Passage (11/5/2021)

H.R. 3684 would address the decades of underinvestment in the nation’s freight infrastructure — particularly segments such as highways that rely on public funding. The inclusion of the Surface Transportation Reauthorization Act and the Surface Transportation Investment Act, as well as funding for new service and repairs for freight rail, is critical for the transport of goods and delivery to consumers. In addition, funding for the deployment and improved access of broadband is vital as digital goods and services are intrinsically woven into the future of retail. Other provisions include the truck driver apprentice pilot program, port modernization to address massive congestion issues, and a focus on sustainability efforts. Read the Key Vote Letter here.

H.Res. 601 Rule Vote to Pass Budget Resolution Raising Corporate Taxes -- Senate amendment to H.R. 3684 (8/24/2021)

NRF is strongly opposed to raising the corporate tax rate to offset the costs of the recently released $3.5 trillion budget resolution. Raising the corporate rate to 28 percent would once again make the U.S. corporate tax rate among the highest in the industrialized world, which is a disincentive to investment in the United States and would impose further harm to a U.S. economy that continues to struggle recovering from the pandemic. Retailers are high effective taxpayers and utilize few of the tax incentives or credits in the Internal Revenue Code. If retailers have to pay a higher rate, it would result in a loss of jobs, closing of stores, and inability to invest in expanded e-commerce capability needed to compete in the post-pandemic marketplace. A recent EY study confirms the negative impacts to the economy, finding that a 28 percent corporate rate would 
lead to the loss of 750,000 to 850,000 jobs and declines in GDP and wages. Read the Key Vote letter here. NRF POSITION: OPPOSE

H.R. 7, Paycheck Fairness Act -- On Passage (4/15/2021)

Retailers believe that employees should be compensated equitably and without discrimination. However, this legislation will significantly limit legitimate, non-discriminatory pay differences and provide for unlimited compensatory and punitive damages in certain instances. H.R. 7 limits employers’ flexibility to compensate its employees based on a wide variety of factors, including differences based on geography, expertise, and management responsibilities. Unfortunately, this legislation creates additional uncertainty and opportunities for frivolous litigation. Read the Key Vote Letter here. NRF POSITION: OPPOSE

H.R. 6, American Dream and Promise Act -- On Passage (3/18/2021)

The Dream and Promise Act would provide a path to citizenship for immigrants who were brought to the country as minors and meet certain educational or military requirements, successfully pass a background check and remain in good legal standing. It further extends a path to citizenship to “legal dreamers,” foreign-born children of temporary workers. Read the Key Vote letter here. NRF POSITION: SUPPORT

H.R. 1745, DRIVE Safe Act -- Co-Sponsorship

This verified information not only gives consumers more details about who they are purchasing their products from, but also assists retailers and law enforcement to address the rising incidences of organized retail crime.

House Sec. 301 Tariff Exclusion Process Letter -- Co-Signers

Reps. Kind, DelBene, Walorski and LaHood led a bipartisan effort to urge the U.S. Trade Representative to establish a comprehensive, fair, and transparent
exclusion process under Section 301 of the Trade Act. This process will allow U.S. retailers, producers, manufacturers, and importers to request relief, on a case-by-
case basis, from all Section 301 tariffs on imports from China. Click here to read the letter from 141 members of Congress. NRF POSITION: SUPPORT.
