A federal strategy to thwart organized retail crimes would be authorized under bipartisan legislation recently sponsored by U.S. Rep. Young Kim (R-CA).  'In my district, we see businesses victimized by organized retail crime nearly every week,' Rep. Kim said. 'This cannot become our new normal.'  The Improving the Federal Response of Organized Retail Crime Act of 2023, H.R. 316, which Rep. Kim reintroduced on Jan. 12 with original cosponsors including U.S. Reps. Andrew Garbarino (R-NY) and Jimmy Panetta (D-CA), would direct certain heads of federal agencies to develop the strategy for improving federal investigations of organized retail crime, according to the text of the bill.
