NRF Continues to Seek Federal ORC Law 
While state-level ORC bills are being considered and adopted across the nation, NRF is continuing to lead the retail industry’s push for Congress to adopt legislation that would make ORC a federal crime. “With more ORC cases crossing state lines, a federal law is needed to ensure that these crimes can be properly addressed and fully prosecuted,” says NRF vice president for supply chain and customs policy Jonathan Gold. “A federal law would recognize the scale on which these incidents are occurring and give federal authorities the tools they need.” Congressional supporters of ORC legislation have asked the business community to work together to help develop legislation that could be introduced during the current session of Congress. NRF is hoping to see a bill ready by the end of this year. NRF is seeking legislation that would define ORC as a federal crime with appropriate sentencing guidelines, provide federal law enforcement agencies with appropriate resources to investigate and prosecute ORC (including development of a multi-agency task force) and make it more difficult for criminals to re-sell stolen merchandise. ORC will be among the topics at NRF’s Loss Prevention Conference in San Diego this month. Multiple sessions will cover issues such as developing an ORC action plan, multi-jurisdiction cases and online fencing. By David P. Schulz (Source
