NATSO Day on Capitol Hill

Congress has the power to make business better.

But it also has the power to make business worse.

If Congress doesn’t hear from the private sector about its issues and concerns, there’s no reason to believe that Congress will make decisions that improve the business climate. 

To ensure that lawmakers understand and respond to the needs of the truckstop and travel plaza community, it is vital that NATSO members play an active role in the political process.


On May 14-16, members of the truckstop and travel plaza community will travel from across the United States to Washington, D.C., to educate their elected officials about the critical role the truckstop industry plays in the U.S. economy as well as to discuss key industry challenges. 

NATSO Day on the Hill 2019 will be held at the Westin Georgetown. Reserve a room in the NATSO block here

Arrive: Arrive in Washington late on Monday, May 13 or the morning of Tuesday, May 14.

NATSO’s annual Day on Capitol Hill marks the biggest opportunity for members of the truckstop and travel plaza industry to speak with lawmakers before they vote on legislation that’s bound to impact your future success. The more you participate, the more Capitol Hill understands our industry and welcomes our positions on critical policy decisions before they are made!
