Legislators are attempting to make sweeping changes in laws that will directly affect you and your trucking business. We at OOIDA are asking you to pledge that you will write at least two letters to legislators over the next twelve months to express your voice on critical issues. When an issue come up, OOIDA will sound out a "Call to Action" letter and e-mail to those truckers who have made this pledge that will describe the pending issue and will include how to contact your legislators and points you might want to make in your letter. If you do not believe a particular issue is important, you are not obligated to write.
Members of Congress do listen to their constituents and even a few letters can determine the opinion of a representative on an issue. We realize your pledge will require an investment of your time and a relatively modest expense, but we believe there is nothing that would be more effective in making improvements for professional truckers than joining us in this effort.
If lawmakers don't hear from you, they are free to ignore you.
Help Us Help You! If you are on our Call to Action list and your e-mail address has changed, or you simply aren't receiving Call to Action E-mail Alerts, be sure to let us know so we can make sure you don't miss any important information. Send your updated e-mail address and questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To enroll in the OOIDA Call To Action program, please jump to the enrollment form and provide us with the needed information (Only members can enroll in the program).Then, the next time legislation comes up that will have an impact on the trucking industry, we'll let you know about it.
