New TIA newsletter follows state legislation

July 28, 2011

The new TIA Government Relations State Legislative Update is now available from the Tire Industry Association (TIA). The publication lists legislation relevant to tire dealers in a state-by-state format.

“There are currently dozens of bills being considered in state legislatures throughout the nation that could have a dramatic impact on tire dealers in those states,” said TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield. “We hope that the easy-to-read TIA Government Relations State Legislative Update will serve as a powerful tool to help keep time-pressed tire dealers up to date and informed, so they can act to help prevent harmful legislation before it is enacted.”

The update is available each month electronically (in pdf format) and is free to all TIA members. To subscribe, members should send an e-mail to [email protected], and put “TIA Member – Subscribe to State Legislation Update” in the subject line. Each month, they will receive an e-mail notifying them of the availability of the latest edition.

The Update lists each piece of legislation by state, bill number, topic and status, and it provides a link to view the bill online (if available). TIA says the group would like it to serve as a catalyst to prompt members to stay in regular contact with their state legislators, in order to ensure that their voice is heard.
