Thanks to all those who attended the TTA convention recently held in Sandestin, Florida, September 19-21, 2022. It was good to see everyone engaged on many issues that affect the trucking industry. Also, a major thank you to Senator Paul Bailey and Representative Pat Marsh for attending. The legislative update not only included Senator Bailey and Representative Marsh but also representatives of the Department of Safety which was very enlightening and informative.
It was also very nice to honor one of our own, Pat Marsh, as the 2022 recipient of the Pinnacle Award. Pat’s service in the legislature over the past several years has been so helpful. He is someone we have always leaned on for assistance on issues involving the trucking industry. As I noted in my comments at the convention, we are so fortunate to have individuals like Pat Marsh and Paul Bailey whose involvement in this industry makes all of our jobs a lot easier.
TTA will be involved with supporting a dinner for House Speaker Cameron Sexton on October 19, 2022. This is the third fundraising dinner of the year that TTA has hosted for a member of the legislature. These dinners prove to be very helpful in that they give representatives of the industry an opportunity to spend quality time with leaders of the legislature to discuss issues affecting the industry. This would not be possible without your support of TruckPAC. Before the year is over, TruckPAC will have contributed more than $100,000 to legislative candidates. This is only made possible by your continued support. Thank you for your support of TruckPAC and our lobbying efforts on behalf of the industry!
