Association works on key issues as 116th Congress convenes

As the 116th Congress convened today, the National Restaurant Association said it is ready to work with members of the House and Senate on key issues, such as immigration, infrastructure, workforce development, and a tax-reform correction.

Democrats now control the House while Republicans retain their Senate majority, following the midterm elections in November.

Although the government remains divided and potential for gridlock is possible, the Association’s policy leaders – who strive to work in a bipartisan and bicameral fashion – say they are optimistic there will be opportunities to advance the restaurant industry’s priorities.

“We look forward to working with Congress to create bipartisan solutions on workforce development issues, immigration, correcting the tax reform drafting error on Qualified Improvement Property (QIP), and improving the roads, bridges, and infrastructure that keep our industry moving,” said Steve Danon, the Association’s senior vice president of public affairs.

Danon also said addressing the industry’s priorities would be good for the economy and business, and added that the Association would continue working with the White House and Administration to ensure regulatory relief for restaurant and foodservice operators.

“Restaurants provide a seat at the table for everyone,” he said. “Working on these issues will help our local communities and restaurants continue to thrive.”
