Trekking To Capitol Hill

Posted on June 10, 2009 by LCT Magazine

NLA DAY ON THE HILL LOBBYING TRIP:
With sore feet and achy legs, I sit writing this report after a full day of meetings on Capit0l Hill with the National Limousine Association.
 
As an industry member, I personally want to thank every individual who spent the day walking the Hill. Some industry members met with aides and assistants to Congressional representatives who looked younger than my 14-year-old daughter. But these extremely intelligent young people hold the ear of their representatives and have the power to make things happen. Meetings with them were equally as important as those that were with the members of Congress themselves. 
 
For those industry members fortunate enough to get face-to-face meetings with Congressmen, they spoke well for the industry. If you were not there, they were your voice. I will be giving a more detailed report of the day in Driving Force next week and in the July issue of LCT Magazine. 
 
If you know an industry member who attended the Day On The Hill, pick up the phone and call them. Thank them for fighting on your behalf. Next year, I hope to see more faces on the Hill — both old and new. I sit here wondering what happened to those industry champions of days gone by who fought on the Hill in the past. You are still as important as you were then and just as needed. If you didn’t come this year, plan to come again next year. You started the momentum. Keep it going. . .
