“While the intentions of its supporters were good, this bill is simply a woefully inadequate and flawed vehicle for achieving the goal we all share,” said Gray in a statement. Formally called the Large Retailer Accountability Act of 013 (LRAA), Gray's statement said the bill would have harmed job growth and economic development.

Won't someone thing about the job providers?  They have a hell of a time!

This sucks. I was really hoping this would go through after the council called WalMart out after they threatened to leave the city.

My favorite part is that this bill only affects those businesses that make over a billion dollars a year. I mean c'mon, multi-billion dollar businesses are just constantly being taken advantage of. Glad the Mayor stood up for the little guy.
