Congress has left the building

Congress began its annual August recess at the end of July, with the House and Senate leaving town without coming to an agreement on annual appropriations measures or a continuing resolution to fund the federal government past the September 30 end of the fiscal year. When Congress returns to Washington September 8, legislators will have only a handful of legislative days to enact government funding measure and other “must-pass” legislation before breaking again at the beginning of October for the lead up to midterm elections.

Dealers are encourage to read the NAEDA issues published in the July/August issue of the Equipment Dealer Magazine and talk with your congressional representative and senators on these important issues while they are on their August recess. Your discussions could be the turning point we need to get the issues addressed this fall.
