Today, Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) executive vice president of government affairs Jennifer Safavian, praised the House passage of the 2018 budget resolution.
"Retailers welcome the final passage of the 2018 budget resolution. Congress can now focus its attention on passing much needed tax reform that benefits American consumers and businesses alike. A simpler tax code that lowers rates and addresses inequities will put more money back in customers pockets and encourage businesses to grow. As we approach the holiday shopping season, retailers are excited to see reforms that give American consumers a boost. We look forward to working with Congress and the Administration to get it done."
