Let’s show legislators that our industry sticks together. Help us speak with a strong and unified voice on Capitol Hill by contributing to BusPAC, the political action committee of the American Bus Association. Through BusPAC, we support legislators who understand and support the interests of the motorcoach and group travel industry.
In 2015, Congress will consider new surface transportation authorization legislation. The proposed legislation has the ability to severely impact each company within the industry. ABA and BusPAC are working on the following issues:
- CSA, hours of service, and the fuel tax
- Funding to promote group travel
- Tax credits and grants to reduce operating costs.
BusPAC is funded on a voluntary basis by ABA members involved in all aspects of the motorcoach, tour and travel industry.
BusPAC funds are contributed to political campaigns of members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives who are both leaders in Congress and have shown support of the industry.
Before ABA can ask for contributions, an authorized representative of an ABA member company must fill out and return this form.
BusPAC is regulated by the Federal Election Commission (FEC). FEC regulations do not allow corporations or labor unions to contribute to PACs. Therefore, only personal contributions may be accepted. The maximum amount an individual may donate to a PAC is currently $5,000 per year.
