The 2021 Congressional Calendar has been released and you can access a copy from the NPA website www.nationalpawnbrokers.org or here https://content.rollcall.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/2021-CQRC-CongressionalCalendar-1.pdf
Our annual Legislative Conference will be held on April 19-21, 2021. You will see on the calendar that both the House and Senate are in session at that time. Obviously due to COVID-19 concerns and heightened security at the Capitol, the usual format of our Conference will require adjustments. More information will be provided as soon as available.
Once thing is now certain, we will have a new administration that shares the same majority in both houses of Congress. New cabinet appointees and heads of many regulatory agencies are coming. We must all be aware and engaged in representing the pawn industry in a positive light and prepare to express our issues and opportunities in a reasonable professional manner.
