PMAA calls for vigorous opposition to rest area commercialization amendment.
Representatives Steven LaTourette (R-OH), Steve Stivers (R-OH), and Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) have introduced an amendment to the Highway Reauthorization bill, which would allow states to commercialize interstate rest areas.
This amendment would turn the legislation into a jobs killer for small businesses because it would overturn a long standing law prohibiting commercialization of rest areas forcing small business petroleum marketers along interstates to compete with government rest areas in their advantageous location on the right-of-way.
PMAA asks that you call your member of Congress and urge them to oppose the LaTourette-Stivers-Kucinich Amendment No. 217. To send a letter via Capwiz, please go to PMAA’s Legislative Action Center or call the Capitol Hill switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
