Legal Action Fund
TRALA 2020 Legal Action Fund CampaignIt has been an unprecedented year so far not only for TRALA and our industry, but the entire country. While I realize you are focused on making sure you meet monthly goals, protect your employees, and work through all the challenges that the coronavirus has brought to you and your customers, I want to remind you of how TRALA continues to help your company.
Since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic in March, TRALA has been at the forefront in providing critical information to its members. TRALA has worked with Congress and the states to ensure its members are treated fairly. TRALA was able to secure essential service status for its members and customers almost immediately and has worked with the Treasury Department and DC attorneys to receive guidance that illustrates the fact that TRALA member customers can use a portion of their Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan for vehicle rent or lease payments. TRALA has also provided specific help on state issues for individual members.
Over the next 18 months, TRALA anticipates an onslaught of legal court battles and legislative fights. Nearly every state will face budget shortfalls and TRALA will fight against every piece of legislation that targets our industry unfairly. TRALA will also continue to support member companies with amicus briefs for court decisions that are unjust. TRALA will need to be nimble and quick to act in order to win and protect our industry.
Because of these reasons, I would like you to consider making a corporate contribution to TRALA’s 2020 Legal Action Fund (LAF) today. TRALA needs your help to ensure that it has the necessary resources ready immediately.
By supporting the LAF, you are making an investment in your company and our industry. I know that it is a difficult time for many businesses but all the more reason to make sure TRALA has the resources it needs so we can continue to promote and protect its membership and their customers.
