United States Senators Lead New Legislation to Provide Relief for the Industry and its Employees

On October 15, United States Senators Catherine Cortez Masto from Nevada and Kevin Cramer for North Dakota announced the Hospitality and Commerce Job Recovery Act of 2020.

The bipartisan legislation “would stimulate the economy by creating new recovery incentives for hospitality and trade shows, enhance the employee retention tax credit to help maintain worker connections to their employer and provide recovery incentives for middle class families to jumpstart travel when safe,” according to the official press release announcing the joint effort.

The meetings and trade show industry is a cornerstone of Sands’ economic contributions to the communities where we do business. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought that industry to a halt, but this bipartisan bill from Senators Cortez Masto and Cramer will help reenergize the industry, and help bring back our workforce, guests and attendees as quickly and safely as possible.
