Communicating with elected officials is a task that merits persistence. A trucker’s livelihood dictates constant vigilance of goings-on at the federal, state and local levels of government.

To make the task more manageable, OOIDA is steadfast in its commitment to getting the word out on important issues that affect you.

With the help of the internet, email and satellite radio, OOIDA has the capability to relay info quickly to truckers about important issues. Land Line Media produces daily news online for OOIDA’s websites, “Land Line Now” broadcasts on Sirius XM Road Dog Channel 146, and the new “Live From Exit 24” is an internet-based talk show that airs regularly.

Additionally, OOIDA’s Call to Action Team is ready to alert truckers about what is happening in Washington, D.C., in state legislatures, and in communities throughout the country.

Team members with email will receive the most current updates on critical issues.

After receiving your alert, it is essential you contact your elected official(s), whose information will be provided; visit their office(s) for a face-to-face conversation; when possible, attend a meeting where they are present for discussion; or submit comments. LL
