Retailers Heading to Hill Next Week

May 10, 2012
Almost 200 retailers will be in town next week for the National Retail Federation's Washington Leadership Conference.

On Wednesday, they will attend about 60 meetings with lawmakers and staff to discuss corporate tax reform and requiring online retailers to collect sales tax. They'll also be emphasizing the importance of retail to the overall economy.

"It's a great opportunity to connect our retailers ... with their lawmakers," NRF senior vice president for government relations David French told the Alley. "The backbone of the retail community in the United States is the folks doing small business retail in local communities."

As part of the conference, NRF is flying in the three finalists of its "This Is Retail" video contest - Tanna Dang of Honolulu, Susan Kaufman of Monmouth, Ill. and Kim Williams of Tallahassee, Fla. The contest - the winner of which will be announced Wednesday - invited retailers from around the country to submit videos about the impact of retail in their lives and communities.

The winner will receive $25,000, while second and third will take home $15,000 and $10,000, respectively. All three finalists are scheduled to participate in the Hill visits and meet their lawmakers.
