State and National Liaison

We act as a liaison with many state agencies including the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Public Service Commission (PSC), Department of Transportation (DOT), State Police and State Tax Department. We work closely with the American Trucking Associations on federal legislation and governmental affairs.

Lobbying
We maintain strong one on one contact with state and federal legislators and government leaders. We are proactive in our efforts for the benefit of our industry and members. We represent the industry on such issues as:

  • Transportation laws and funding
  • Environmental law
  • Highway use and sales taxes
  • Highway safety
  • Vehicle size and weight

Education and Communication
We keep members informed of constantly changing laws and regulations to help keep them informed and aid them in holding down the cost of doing business. Some examples are:

  • We constantly strive to keep members informed regarding issues affecting their businesses. For example:
  • We supply a monthly newsletter, Highways & Byways and various timely bulletins throughout the year on specific issues.
  • When the Legislature is in session, members receive News from Inside the Capitol legislative updates to keep them abreast of legislative activity and to aid in our grassroots efforts.
  • We have a web site, www.wvtrucking.com, which supplies a vast array of information to keep members informed, as well as links to other industry sites.

Survival Hotline
Members are urged to call the WVTA office at 304.345.2800 anytime with questions concerning any matters that affect their business.

Safety
Promoting the safety or our members and the public is very important to us. Each year, we conduct a Truck Driving Championship (TDC) and hold contests for fleets safety awards and driver awards, including West Virginia Driver of the Year.

Annual Convention
We hold an annual convention for members where they gain information at our business sessions and network with others in the industry at social functions.

WVTA PAC
With the many tough issues that our industry faces, it is important for us to have candidates in office that understand our industry. The WVTA PAC gives us the ability to donate to business friendly candidates with whom we can work in the State Legislature.
