Revitalizing Local Businesses

The Issue: Bars, restaurants and entertainment venues impacted by the pandemic continue to face challenges with lower foot traffic and higher operating costs.

We Encourage Congress to:

  • Support the Creating Hospitality Economic Enhancement for Restaurants and Servers (CHEERS) Act (H.R. 7577), which would provide a tax deduction for bars, restaurants and entertainment venues with draft beer systems
