IFA Statement on PRO Act Introduction

February 04, 2021

The International Franchise Association (IFA) today released the following statement on the introduction of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act:

“The PRO Act is the worst bill for franchising ever considered in Congress. At a time when so many small businesses are still struggling in the wake of the pandemic, it’s disappointing so many members of Congress have chosen to support legislation that would eviscerate the franchise business model as we know it."

IFA represents America’s 733,000 franchise small businesses, who together employ more than 8 million Americans.
