Congress has indicated they will focus on their next COVID-19 Relief package in July, so NPMA has created a month-long campaign to spotlight COVID-19 bills our industry cares about. Each week we will be asking you to participate in a voter voice on a specific bill to raise awareness on Capitol Hill. NPMA will also be tweeting and sending a letter from Dominque Stumpf, NPMA’s CEO, to Congress outlining our concerns.
This week’s campaign focuses on H.R. 6841 The AG CHAIN Act.
The AG CHAIN Act would provide a federal tax holiday and a payroll tax exemption for all essential employees in the food and agriculture industry, including pest control. Workers covered are those who “support the sanitation and pest control of all human and animal food manufacturing processes and operations from wholesale to retail.”
