On the Road Again

May has been a busy week of travel for this LCT editor. I attended four association meetings, including the NLA’s Day On The Hill lobbying push, and visited Perfect Limo in Northern New Jersey.

When it comes to association news, there’s definitely a consistent theme: the constant ebb and flow of pending regulations and looming legislation. Here’s a quick list:

The Philadelphia Regional Limousine Association (PRLA) is taking preemptive action on proposed vehicle mileage limits proposed by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission.

The Limousine Associations of New Jersey (LANJ) is pushing legislation that would require jitney operators to abide by the same rules and regulations as limo companies, including minimum insurance requirements, CDL, criminal background checks, and MVC authority.

The Long Island Limousine Association (LILA) is dealing with the aggressive vehicle seizures by the NYCTLC.

Meanwhile, New York operators are hoping to see the state sales tax on limos repealed there.

I’ll be keeping my thumb on these issues as they progress in coming months.

In June, I’ll be heading to the LCT Leadership Summit (6/9-11), and then on to the New England Livery Association’s June membership meeting (6/11). Hopefully I’ll see some of you there.
