2023 Call to Action
Dear Indiana Motor Truck Association (IMTA) Member,
Another political year is upon us. This year is a “long session” because it’s an odd year. It includes the bi-annual budget which means a lot of bills and a lot of activity in general. Trucking is a hot topic in various capacities at the statehouse. Without our voice, those who create language and ultimately bills may not reflect what is best for our industry. That is why we advocate.
We are closely watching many bills and aggressively testifying on others. It moves quickly; by the time you receive this letter, there may be additional topics on the horizon. We are currently watching or working on things related to cameras in work zones, tort reform specific to seat belts and lawsuit abuse, speed limit, weight, road funding, employee misclassification, automated vehicles, and agency control/oversight, to name a few. Your support strengthens our voice.
The time to advocate is not only now but after session is over, preparing for 2024. It is an ongoing movement at the IMTA. Every contribution is important and vital to the success of our advocacy efforts and benefits all members. Last year contributors brought TIPAC to within 86% of the goal. This year the goal is $75,000.
A contribution form is enclosed if you are receiving this via USPS mail. It is also available HERE online if you are receiving this electronically. Please support and if mailing checks, make payable to TIPAC. We deeply appreciate your contribution in support of the industry here in Indiana.
