NADA Grassroots Update

Last year, through coordinated emails, phone calls and congressional dealership visits, the voice of the dealer was heard loud and clear when it counted most. Once again, NADA and ATD’s grassroots efforts were effective — especially in our efforts to protect vehicle franchise laws, which were part of legislation involving self-driving cars, and in preserving 100 percent deductibility of floorplan interest.

Because 2018 is an election year, it’s the perfect time to meet with your members of Congress — either in their district offices or at your dealership — to discuss NADA and ATD’s legislative priorities. These efforts reinforce the NADA’s work on Capitol Hill. For more information on how to set up a visit with your legislator, contact Patrick Calpin, NADA grassroots director, at or 202-547-5500.
