There has been a lot of noise in Washington, D.C., over the past month or so. It can be easy to think that this means nothing is happening with the GYMS Act, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Late on Friday, November 5, the House of Representatives finally passed the bipartisan infrastructure bill. The bill previously passed the Senate, so the bill is now destined for President Biden’s desk, where he will sign it into law once Congress returns from recess next week. Congress is still negotiating over the passage of the Build Back Better Act.
While there are still significant hurdles to overcome, we have never been closer to getting federal relief for the industry.
You are not reading about it in the media because the drama in Congress to pass Build Back Better makes better headlines. Congressional and committee offices—with the power to get relief introduced and passed into law—are talking about how to do that for gyms.
