NATSO Day on Capitol Hill 2020

On May 12-14, members of the truckstop and travel plaza community traveled 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’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!
