The Administration and Congress represent challenges and opportunities that we will need to face as an industry, together.
The Administration and Congress are considering a wide range of policies that could impact the cold chain in 2023. Key issues:
Congress is working to reauthorize the Farm Bill in 2023.
GCCA will be actively engaging with Congress to advance cold chain industry initiatives and priorities.
Revising EPA’s Risk Management Program (RMP) regulation and placing additional requirements on industry
Changes to OSHA’s Process Safety Management regulation
Implementation of FDA’s Food Traceability Rule
Pursuing aggressive policies to address climate change, through both executive action and legislation
Implementation of the AIM Act to phase down HFCs
Increasing the corporate tax rate and phasing out deductions for pass-through entities
Raising the top marginal income-tax rate
Strengthening worker organizing, collective bargaining and unions through executive action and legislation such as the PRO Act
NLRB advancing labor initiatives, like ‘micro-unit’ organizations and joint employer policies
This is why GCCA launched, the Advocacy Fund, to expand our advocacy efforts on behalf of our industry. The Advocacy Fund will support our increased efforts to promote and protect the cold chain.
Members are urged to consider making financial contributions to support these expanded advocacy efforts.
