The three E’s – the elections, the economy and engaging with legislators were at the forefront of day two of NADA’s first virtual Washington Conference.
More than 450 new-car and truck dealers and association executives traveled to the nation’s capital this week to take part in NADA’s 45th annual Washington Conference and Congressional fly-in, stepping up their advocacy efforts to shape the federal laws and regulations that will impact their industry for years to come.
More than 450 of NADA’s most politically active members, including new-car and truck dealers, national board members and state association leadership traveled to the nation’s capital this week for NADA’s annual Washington Conference and Congressional fly-in.
During this critical time in our industry, our elected officials need to understand the significance of our business more than ever and how their policies can impact our employees, customers and communities.
As part of ATD’s fly-In, dealers attended Capitol Hill meetings on June 19-20 in support of legislation (H.R. 2381/S. 1839) that would repeal the federal excise tax (FET) on heavy-duty trucks and trailers.
Next week’s Memorial Day congressional recess, which runs from May 27 to May 31, presents an ideal opportunity for dealers to advocate for dealers’ legislative priorities in face-to-face meetings at their dealership or in lawmakers’ offices.
