WASHINGTON, D.C. — Fifty operator, supplier, and manufacturer members of the National Limousine Association (NLA) stepped up Capitol Hill together on June 14 for the organization’s annual mega-lobbying visit to the U.S. Congress. Meetings were held with more than four dozen Congressional leaders and staffers whose committee assignments match livery industry interests.

NLA members who participated in the Day on the Hill imparted two messages in their meetings: the NLA seeks Congressional awareness that some U.S. airports are violating the Real Interstate Driver Equity Act by charging limousine operators outrageous permitting fees; and, the NLA wants lawmakers to fix the technicality that’s holding up limousine Gas Guzzler Tax exemption by signing a letter prepared by Congressmen Rob Andrews (D-NJ) and Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) for the IRS that requests the necessary administrative change.
