Desilva-on-the-HillFederal legislation, particularly in these tumultuous times, has an enormous impact on America's dealerships. That is why AIADA works to increase awareness in the government and the public about the international nameplate automobile industry's value to the U.S. economy.  We focus our lobbying efforts on federal issues impacting America's international nameplate automobile dealers, including  trade and anti-competitive restrictions that limit the availability of international nameplate automobiles; full repeal of the Death Tax, including protection of the LIFO method and other tax measures; energy and fuel economy policies that give the consumer more choice; opposition to card check legislation that would take away the secret ballot election in the unionization process; and other industry-related issues.
