State & Federal Developments

State Issues

New York Attorney General Letitia James joined with Attorneys General from New Jersey, California, and eight other states in a letter issued to Visa, Mastercard and American Express, applauding their decision to adopt the International Organization for Standardization’s new merchant category codes for gun and ammunition purchases.  All three companies announced earlier this month that they would adopt the new codes.

Federal Issues

The House of Representatives passed a short-term government funding measure on September 30, which is now on its way to President Biden for his signature before the fiscal year ends at midnight. Passage of the legislation averts a government shutdown. The Senate passed the measure yesterday. The government will be funded through December 16.
