    To bring clarity to this article, the Philadelphia Limousine Association is in no way affilaited or connected with the PRLA (Philadelphia Regional Limousine Assocation). The PRLA is an organized incorporated non-profit association for over 20 years, and has been previously awarded Assocation of the Year by LCT Magazine. The Philadelphia Limousine Association mentioned in the article is not a formally organized nor recognized association in the state of Pennsylvania. The PRLA membership has a formal stance that we wil embarace and work with the DNC organizers and the City of Philadelphia this coming summer to provide legally regulated and responsbile quality passenger logitics for all who will visit and attend the city during the DNC.
