Jewelers of America’s (JA) latest Legislative Update covers some of the big policy initiatives – including comprehensive tax reform, a potential import tax and the FTC’s “Cultured Diamond” terminology – that are in play for 2017 and their impact on jewelry businesses.
With the New Year came major changes in Washington, D.C., with Republicans now controlling the Legislative and Executive Branches for the first time since 2000. This shift in power means that big policy initiatives are realistically in play in 2017. JA’s latest legislative update for Jewelers of America Members reviews five issues that will impact the legislative landscape for the jewelry industry in 2017.
JA’s leadership in government affairs keeps jewelers’ interests front-and-center in the nation’s capital on federal and state legislative issues that matter most to jewelry businesses. Their Legislative Action Center allows you to take action on these issues by directly contacting influential representatives.
