Tell Your Lawmaker Commercial Rest Areas Hurt Jobs and Local Communities

All politics is local, and lawmakers need to hear from their constituents about issues that affect their businesses and the communities where they operate.

As Congress debates the next surface transportation bill, it’s critical that Interstate-based businesses educate lawmakers about the important role they play in providing jobs and tax revenue to local communities nationwide as well as voice concern with policies that could adversely affect them, such as rest area commercialization.

One upcoming opportunity to do just that is to join NATSO in Washington, D.C., on May 10 – 11 for NATSO Day on Capitol Hill.

Visit to register, view the schedule of events, and find a link to the hotel room block for May 9 and 10 at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C.

Attendees also can attend the NATSO Pie Reception, where you can mingle with lawmakers and their staffs, and enjoy delicious pies from local truckstops.
