In his President's Message in the Jan/Feb edition of the Towing and Recovery Association of America newsletter, President Sam Brewer announced the opening of a Legal Action bank account.
The Board voted to open the account during the Fall meeting in Chattanooga. The fund is to be used for the support of issues that arise and threaten the best interests of the towing and recovery industry. It was opened with $10,000 and member contributions will be added.
Brewer wrote: "With this growing fund we will have the revenue needed to move forward with issues that our Legislative Committee and counsel recommend we pursue, and we can do so without having to consider special assessments or other means to raise the necessary money."
The Legal Action fund is separate from the existing Political Action Fund, which is used to support political entities that support the towing industry.
