NACDS announced that it remains committed to support efforts to reduce the hidden costs of interchange fees to retailers and consumers, following the House Judiciary Committee Antitrust Task Force's recent hearing on credit card interchange fees. Committee members examined the impact of interchange fees on consumers and businesses as well as the antitrust law implications of the interchange fee system.
