Washington Report – Jan. 17, 2020

Posted by: jgomori Posted date: January 17, 2020

NAPO had a very successful year in 2019 moving legislative and policy priorities, including the enactment of two of the biggest priorities: the permanent reauthorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and the permanent repeal of the “Cadillac Tax”; NAPO priority legislation passed by the House or Senate in 2019 includes: Protecting America’s First Responders Act, Rehabilitation for Multiemployer Pensions Act and Restoring Tax Fairness for States and Localities Act. NAPO is looking forward to building off the incredible momentum we gained in 2019 on these priority bills and seeing them signed into law in 2020; President Trump signed into law the National Law Enforcement Museum Commemorative Coin Act, which directs the U.S. Treasury Department to mint and issue up to 1.2 million gold, silver, and copper clad coins celebrating the National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C. Proceeds from the coins’ sale will provide a needed future stream of private funding for the Museum to ensure its permanence; Find out how your representatives and senators voted on NAPO’s priority legislation by reviewing NAPO’s Legislative Scorecard for the first term of the 116th Congress; and It’s the last chance to register for NAPO’S 32nd Annual Pension & Benefits Seminar to be held at Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 26-28, 2020.
