NLBMDA Praises Introduction of Restoring Investments in Improvements Act

The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) praises action taken yesterday by Reps. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA) and Jackie Walorski (R-IN) to introduce the Restoring Investments in Improvements Act (H.R. 1869, S. 803), which would fix a drafting error in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and make interior improvements to retail stores eligible for accelerated bonus depreciation.

“NLBMDA is pleased to see momentum building in Congress to address the unfair tax treatment of interior improvements that is discouraging business investment,” said Jonathan Paine, NLBMDA President & CEO. “Congressional action is needed to unlock the full benefits of tax reform for lumber dealers.”
 
NLBMDA members plan to meet with lawmakers regarding this issue on April 2 as part of the Spring Meeting and Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C.

Take Action – Ask Your Representative to Cosponsor Relief from Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Compliance

NLBMDA urges its members to take action bcontacting their Representative and asking them to cosponsor the Small Carrier Electronic Device and Exemption Act (H.R. 1697), which would exempt businesses that operate 10 or fewer commercial trucks from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) electronic logging device (ELD) requirement.

The legislation has been introduced by Reps. Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Greg Gianforte (R-MT), who are concerned that the ELD requirement is overly burdensome to small businesses with fleet operations and that more regulatory flexibility is needed.

Please take action and ask your Representative to provide relief from ELD compliance by cosponsoring the Small Carrier Electronic Device and Exemption Act (H.R. 1697). To read the complete communication, click here.
