Government Representation and Lobbying

In order to address the concerns of dealers, the PIADA meets regularly with government officials from state agencies that regulate the used car business in Pennsylvania.


We also utilize a PAC Fund and the services of a lobbyist to implement PIADA’s legislative agenda and to assist in resolving bureaucratic issues as they arise in state agencies.  For example, PIADA was successful in obtaining an increase in the document preparation fee from $55 to $100 plus annual cost of living adjustments.
