This week marks the first full week of the 2019 General Assembly Session. This year is a short session, so it will be extremely fast paced. Crossover is February 6th, which means all legislation must be through its body of origin by that date. The Session is scheduled to wrap up Saturday, February 23rd.
As Session ramps up, we have seen a large about of bills introduced that will have a negative impact on business if passed. You can find our full bill list here. As you will see, there are many of the same issues that arise annually back again this year. We will keep you posted as to the status of these bills in coming Advocate Emails.
As you have seen over the past month, our big initiative is Sales Tax Fairness. Please reach out to your legislators on the importance of this issue. This is an opportunity for the Commonwealth to level the playing field between brick and mortar retailers and online retailers.
Come meet your legislative representatives and join your fellow retailers at this networking opportunity.
