Tell Congress to Pass the "Credit Card Competition Act"

Key reasons why Congress needs to pass the "Credit Card Competition Act:"

  • The bipartisan "Credit Card Competition Act" will bring competition to the credit card network routing market
  • This legislation will foster competition and security in the payments ecosystem while bringing down the cost of swipe fees and encouraging innovation services and fraud protection
  • If passed, this bill will reduce one of the highest recurring costs for every single restaurant that accepts credit cards

Tell the Senate to Pass "Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act"

Bill would restore expired tax deductions for many operators who are investing in their restaurants

  • By restoring business interest expensing, this bill would help many restaurant operators lower their tax burden when investing in building upgrades, dining room remodels, expansions, and refurbishments.
  • The bill would also accelerate “bonus depreciation” for the immediate expensing of investments, providing small businesses with more cash on hand.
