Federal 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.

Whenever possible, AIADA seeks to develop strategic alliances with related organizations to achieve our mission of protecting the interests of America's international automobile dealers. Whether hosting an event, signing onto a letter, or helping influence legislation in other ways, we are actively involved with numerous like-minded organizations in and around Washington, D.C.
