NATSO Urges House Transportation Committee to Oppose Legislation to Commercialize Rest Areas

NATSO led a group of trade associations representing hundreds of thousands of small businesses in urging members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to oppose H.R. 1990, recently introduced by Congressman Jim Banks (R-Ind.), that would permit commercial services such as convenience stores and restaurants at Interstate rest areas. NATSO was joined in signing the letter by the National Federation of the Blind, National Association of Convenience Stores, National Council of Chain Restaurants, Petroleum Marketers Association of America, and the Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America.
