TRAA 4th annual Legislative Action Workshop & Hill Daykicks off in DC!


Our primary mission this year will be to secure support and bipartisan co-signers for the National Move Over Law Day Resolution (House and Senate versions).


The resolution is part of TRAA's two-pronged approach to reducing roadside fatalities (a) by raising public awareness of the issue and (b) by promoting policies at the federal level that help reduce incidents. In addition to discussing this significant issue, attendees will also meet with Members of Congress and staff who play a vital role in crafting policy that impacts the towing industry. Today we’ll be meeting with Senator Ben Cardin, Chair of the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee, Senator Tammy Duckworth, U.S. Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation, Congressman Chris Pappas, House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure, Larry Minor, Associate Administrator for Policy at Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and Paul Wasik, U.S. Senate Professional Staff for Transportation Policy.




It’s “Hill Day” and towers from across the country will be meeting with their Members of Congress to make real, substantial change.


With over 35 constituent meetings scheduled, we are educating Members and staffers on the industry and asking for their support on the National Move Over Law Day Resolution (H.Res.1052). These meetings are critical to securing co-sponsors and votes. Plus, the group will also be meeting with another member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, Congressman Mark Desaulnier. It’s going to be a busy day moving the industry forward!

It’s the third and final day of TRAA’s 4th annual Legislative Action Workshop & Hill Day in DC! We’re meeting with Congressman Jim McGovern, Chairman of the House Committee on Rules and sponsor of the National Move Over Law Day Resolution (H.Res.1052), and Christian Bell, Professional Staff on the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee. Thank you to everyone who attended this year, it was a great group and we made huge progress on promoting the industry’s legislative priorities
