NRA Public Affairs Conference 2016
In April 2016, a delegation of IRA members joined hundreds of their peers in Washington D.C. for the NRA Public Affairs Conference. The group attended expert panels and informational sessions and lobbied congressional leaders on several crucial issues, including: stopping new overtime regulations from the Department of Labor, reining in joint-employer changes from the National Labor Relations Board, and preserving the FICA 45(B) tax credit.
