Across the country, businesses and communities are continuing to face a sustained surge in theft and violent crime. Retail crime remains a significant issue across the U.S. and has prompted a wave of calls across the country for policymakers to take action. While there has been some progress at the state and local level to address this serious issue, Congress must act.

During the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s latest Common Grounds event, Rep. Mike Garcia (R-CA-27) and Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA-19) joined Tom Wickham, Senior Vice President of State and Local Policy at the U.S. Chamber, to discuss the challenges businesses, communities, and policymakers around the country are facing, and how Congress should take action to address this serious issue.
