What everyone needs to do TODAU is contact their Congressional or Senate representatives that HAVE already co-sponsored and 1st, thank them, then ask if SENATOR/REP would do something to elevate our issue and bring attention to it: push them to send a letter to the leadership that they support the Motorcoach Industry!

TOM GIDDENS
39:39
CARB is the least of our problem now. We have no where to take customers because your Governor refuses to open up
Pat Burriel
41:28
CARB is a big problem...Who can afford newer buses?? 85& of buses here will be gone when we open up!!
Larry Killingsworth
42:20
Debbie M—that is great news! Can I call on you to explain your approach?
Jasmine Sayah
43:11
Pat Burriel CARB is not the problem. The issues we're facing in California is as a result of poor leadership within our State. Mainly the Governor and his drastic measures and decisions. Let's focus attention on the things we CAN change.
Kevin Creighton
43:12
Pat. CARB was 10 yrs ago. They aren’t budging on anything. Tightening up if anything...
TOM GIDDENS
43:53
Right on Jasmine
TOM GIDDENS
44:35
And CARD was years ago when the fight was on. Should have been there then
James Seaton
44:43
You hit the nail on the head Jasmine.
Jasmine Sayah
47:00
Pat I recommend that perhaps when you're purchasing equipment, make sure it's equipment that CAN be utilized in the State of California. Just food for thought....
Debby Micale
47:18
Take the lead. Don't wait for the work to come to you. Go get it. Stay in touch with your customers. They will come to the people who are on their mind the most.
Jasmine Sayah
48:19
Thank you Tom Giddens, Kevin Creighton & James Seaton!
Paige Balsinger
49:46
