NRF hosts Nevada Congressman at retail roundtable

The National Retail Federation and the Retail Association of Nevada hosted Representative Mark Amodei, R-Nev. for a Retail Roundtable discussion.

More than a dozen community retailers and small business owners gathered at Rapscallion Seafood House to talk with Amodei about the industry’s challenges and public policy priorities.

“The retail industry is the largest private sector employer in the United States,” NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said. “We need to make sure lawmakers understand how policy issues impact retailers, our employees and our consumers. Facilitating discussions on these important issues is essential to ensuring that retailers, large and small, have a voice in Washington.”

Amodei engaged local retailers in a discussion on the economy, tax reform, immigration, health and labor policy, and online sales tax collection.

"When it comes to the key issues of the economy, health care, taxes, and even immigration, local retailers and their employees are really on the front lines,” Congressman Amodei said. “I appreciate an opportunity like this roundtable to hear what effect decisions being made in Washington are having on businesses, jobs, and consumers here in Nevada.”

“Our members are deeply concerned with the Federal issues that will have a significant impact on their ability to hire new employees and keep their doors open,” Retail Association of Nevada Senior Director Lea Tauchen said.

“Whether it’s the Affordable Care Act, Federal Unemployment Insurance, or Sequestration, there is no doubt that Congress is engaged on issues that affect us. We appreciate Representative Amodei for taking the time to sit down and explore these issues.”

The Retail Roundtable is a part of NRF’s This is Retail campaign, which highlights the retail industry’s positive contribution to careers, community and innovation.

As the world’s largest retail trade association and the voice of retail worldwide, NRF represents retailers of all types and sizes, including chain restaurants and industry partners, from the United States and more than 45 countries abroad. Retailers operate more than 3.6 million U.S. establishments that support one in four U.S. jobs – 42 million working Americans.
