Walmart Statement Regarding the Sustained Veto of the Large Retailer Accountability Act of 2013

Sept. 17, 2013 -- “We applaud those Council members who rejected pressure from special interest groups to do the right thing by their constituents. We look forward to being part of the solution in communities across D.C., especially in areas east of the river that have been traditionally overlooked by major retailers, when it comes to creating jobs, economic development opportunities and more affordable shopping options in Washington, D.C.”

-- Steven Restivo, Senior Director of Communications, Walmart
