BENSENVILLE, Ill.—National Limousine Association executive director Philip Jagiela made his first trip to the Illinois Limousine Association’s annual spring meeting on May 15. “I wanted to enhance the relationship between our association members and demonstrate the NLA’s willingness to work with all its members,” he said.

Jagiela spoke about the issues that the NLA has been lobbying law-makers on and how it affects ILA members. This week, members of the NLA will make their annual lobbying trip to Capitol Hill to communicate the interests of the chauffeured transportation industry to the nation’s legislators. Jagiela also discussed how Uber is affecting the industry.

The executive director of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce Healthcare Council, Laura Minzer, led a discussion concerning the Affordable Health Care Act (ObamaCare) and how this new law will impact operators.

Rosemary Krimbel, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, also briefed ILA members on regulations that effect Chicago ground transportation companies. The commission handles the licensing of vehicles and chauffeurs in Chicago.
