The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is presenting its 2016 Legislative Review "The Issues that Affect You and How to Protect your Bottom Line" on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from noon to 1 p.m. in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Rooms S106-107.

Greg Smith, publisher of Modern Tire Dealer, will moderate the discussion presented by Roy Littlefield, executive vice president, TIA: and Roy Littlefield IV, director of government affairs, TIA.

A variety of pending issues and legislation will be addressed in this session. “With increased fines, penalties, enforcement, laws, and guidelines, the tire industry should be concerned with the legislative and regulatory climate,” says TIA. “With an ever-changing industry, there are more questions now than ever before on what the future holds for your business.”

Topics will include tire recall recovery reform (tire registration), Last In, First Out (LIFO) repeal, estate tax repeal efforts, marketplace fairness (internet sales), Obamacare, proposed overtime changes, working families social legislation (paid leave, minimum wage), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections, IRS audits, used tire sales, tire aging, Chinese tariffs, and annual safety inspections.

At the session, TIA will distribute legislative materials, answer questions, and provide an overview of the legislative climate moving forward and the opportunities TIA members have to stay informed and get involved with issues that will affect their bottom line.
