Legislative Advocacy

One of PAA’s primary roles is working with the General Assembly and the Governor’s Administration to ensure that legislation that is signed into law positively affects PAA’s dealer members. 
   
 

Not all legislative initiatives impacting dealers are initiated by PAA.

A variety of bills are introduced each legislative session, and PAA is routinely confronted with the need to engage with the General Assembly regarding legislation that is contrary to dealers' interest.

 

PAA hosts a Legislative Committee Meeting each March. Dealers are encouraged to communicate industry issues and legislative suggestions to PAA's Legislative Team.
