NRF names two lawmakers as 'Legislators of the Year'

The National Retail Federation announced that Senator Mark Warner, D-Va. and Representative John Kline, R-Minn., have been recognized as NRF’s Legislators of the Year. The awards presentation was made during the Retail Advocates Summit, NRF’s annual congressional fly-in.

“We thank Senator Warner and Representative Kline for their service and strong work in Congress on issues important to the retail industry,” NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said. “Both lawmakers uniquely understand the important impact that the retail industry has on the economy and have taken concrete steps to support America’s retailers. I join our members in recognizing their dedication and commitment to the health and vitality of small and large retailers alike.”

Warner was elected to the Senate in 2008 and serves on the Finance, Banking, Budget, and Intelligence committees. The former Virginia governor has taken a holistic approach to investigating the complex issue of data and payment security, and has been a consistent voice of reason on implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Kline has represented Minnesota’s second congressional district since 2003. He is chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, where he has been a tireless advocate for workers and employers. Kline has successfully advanced legislation to restrain the reckless agenda of the National Labor Relations Board on ambush elections and micro-unions, and worked with his colleagues to pass the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which was signed into law earlier this month.

The NRF Government Affairs Policy Council, the association’s committee for federal legislative and regulatory issues, selected the two lawmakers for the recognition.
