Legislative Committee

IOPFDA's Legislative Committee will represent independent dealer interests before the U.S. and key state and local governments. 

Under the guidance of Paul Miller, IOPFDA's director of legislative & regulatory affairs, the committee
is made up of dedicated industry professionals who recognize the importance of solid representation for dealers. The committee has tackled issues including:

  • Overtime Rules
  • Association Health Plans (AHP's)
  • Estate Tax Relief
  • Pass-Through Business
  • Expansion of Section 179 Expensing
  • Reopening of GSA Scheduled 75
  • National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) / Amazon Online Marketplace

NOPA is in the process of developing an education and training program to assist dealers in their efforts against Amazon and has put together the NOPA Amazon Task force. We are currently interviewing professional training companies to assist with the creation of training and presentation materials to be used by the IDC with commercial, federal and SLED customers.
