Urge Your Member of Congress to Cosponsor the AG CHAIN Act (H.R. 6841)
Please urge your representative to support H.R. 6841, the AG CHAIN Act and its Senate companion measure, the FRNT LINE Act (due to be introduced in the coming weeks). These bipartisan bills, sponsored by Rep. G.T. Thompson (R-PA) and Dwight Evans (D-PA) in the House and Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) in the Senate, would recognize the heroes serving at the frontlines of the food and agriculture industry by extending income and payroll tax relief for income earned during the public health emergency. These dedicated and talented men and women are working tirelessly to ensure that our food supply chain continues to operate for the benefit of all Americans. The AG CHAIN Act / FRNT LINE Act honor our supermarket superheroes and will help boost the income of workers that show up for work every day.
The independent supermarket industry employs nearly a million workers, most of whom are on the frontline selflessly serving the nation during this time of crisis. These workers are choosing to serve their communities even as they face serious challenges and risks associated with leaving their homes during this uncertain time. These essential workers deserve to be recognized and supported by the federal government.
