NRF in Washington: Advocacy update

Congress is back in session before recess. Lawmakers have a full slate of legislative items to wrap up, including annual government spending bills, federal nominations, a U.S.-China competition bill, possibly a renegotiated reconciliation package and much more. With election season right around the corner, we expect Congress to move quickly to finish must-pass legislative items — many of which will impact the retail industry.
