If you missed GACS’ Legislative Reception & Day on the Hill, you missed a very impactful & big event!
This year, GACS hosted nearly 20 retailer and supplier members at the Capitol during the morning hours before the legislative reception. Each member took time to introduce themselves to their elected officials and invite them to the reception. Those of us who spoke to officials that were not able to be at the reception, we able to ask for them to keep our industry and the jobs we provide in mind as they vote for or against legislation this year.
After lunch, we had the privilege to sit in on the House Regulated Industries Committee Meeting as well as the House Ways & Means Committee Meeting. Both were organizational meetings, but gave us insight as to where events take place on the Capitol Grounds & how our lobbyist spend their days on the hill.
We encourage ALL members to join us for a full day next year!

TAMPA, Fla. – In recent months, a number of social rights groups (often referred to as “workers centers”) have been collaborating with labor unions to stage public demonstrations from coast to coast, and around the globe. While the ultimate aims of these organizations are not always clear, the themes often revolve around wages, benefits and other working conditions. Thus far, these groups have directed most of their activities at the fast food industry, but it is fair to assume that as well.
