A GA judge just threw out Trump’s lawsuit
United Motorcoach Association

My mistake: Larry Hundt heads up Canada for UMA. Sorry!
Leon Griebenow
30:19
Judge threw out Trump's case in Michigan also.
Brenda Tidwell
34:54
Being from GA, I can say this. Both senators used Covid-19 to dump stocks and get rich!
Ginny Orr

Hello from Corporate Coach Charter Los Angeles, CA
Mary Presley
41:34
Will we have to start all over again lobbying on yet another bill to get the support and funding we need?
MATT DANCE
45:31
goodbye fuel tax exemption.
Leon Griebenow
46:03
I think a Big Infrastructure bill would help more of us in the rural areas. So it sounds like we are no longer a bi-partisan organization as was stated a few meetings ago?
Constance Giddens
47:34
i wish I had taken a picture of the last slide. will they be available on the UMA website?
Julianne Ryder
50:15
Yes, they will, Connie! In today's Newsflash.
Ginny Orr
50:40
clearly they are not interested in passing the CERTs Act-with the unprecedented support and still no results, their lack of action seems pretty clear
Michelle Moore
52:34
Are there any bus sales co buying used buses?
Gladys Gillis
54:26
does anyone know the exact list of issues that the Transit Workers Union has with CERTSA?
Kevin Creighton
55:55
union wants us to go away
Brenda Tidwell
56:05
Maybe because they want to run charters
Mary Presley
56:23
Of course they want to run charters they always have
Kevin Creighton
56:34
industry misses Jim Seal.
Mary Presley
57:47
Jim was certainly one of the best he is truly missed. We should erect a statue him
Armando miranda
58:28
I agree with Kevin the union want us out
Mary Presley
58:30
2020 or 2019
Ginny Orr
58:35
no reason to even have employees if no bus to drive or business anymore
Ryan Sanders
59:00
That would be an absolute mess in regards to unemployment!
Ben Dolph
59:13
Did they not already receive unemployment and bonus COVID pay through unemployment?
Kevin Creighton
01:00:49
California just passed Prop 22. UberLyft Grub Hub can still be Independent Contractors.... this is start
Ben Dolph
01:01:08
Would they have to return that income back to the government for the additional pay we would provide them?
Constance Giddens
01:01:36
Amazing they see it needs to go to the employees. if we go out of business then who will take care of them? Back on unemployment!!
Jared Jozaitis
01:02:37
What comes first the chicken or the egg? A business or an employee?
Jared Jozaitis
01:03:04
Classic political arguement
Tracy Raimer
01:03:18
Regarding states such as IL with 25% occupancy. Can states enforce 25% on motor coaches since we are DOT regulated? Doesn't DOT trump state or city guidelines or orders?
Mary Presley
01:03:34
Carolina Opry knows how to do groups that’s for sure

Tracy Raimer
01:21:12
Can we discuss? Regarding states such as IL with 25% occupancy. Can states enforce 25% on motor coaches since we are DOT regulated? Doesn't DOT trump state or city guidelines or orders?
Andy Byars
01:22:37
I would hope there is no occupancy issues, the airlines are not practicing it anywhere!!!
Leon Griebenow
01:22:47
Tracy Raimer has a good question
Ben Dolph
01:22:59
We will see you in Orlanda
Doug Baker
01:23:21
Then they better fine the airlines too!
Brenda Tidwell
01:23:27
What state issued ticket?
Tracy Raimer
01:24:29
IL
Sandy Follis
01:25:11
I know that it is different here from County to County in FL
Jared Jozaitis
01:26:06
Are transportation vehicles specifically mentioned in the ordinance?
John Kruger
01:26:12
If you can't maintain 6ft distance (walking, in a grocery store, on a bus, etc) we tell our passengers to wear masks. We're in NYS but we let the charter group decide if they want to pack a bus or limit capacity. Granted, we haven't had a group pack a bus, most are limiting to 50%, Up to them. No one has bothered us.
Ryan Sanders
01:26:31
I would definitely challenge that if the airlines do not have to abide by that rule
Jeff Goldwasser
01:26:51
How does the state handle their transit & school buses ?
Dan Newby
01:28:32
you should be able to contact your local FWDOT Office and get a determination on the Federal authority vs State.
John Kruger
01:28:34
All military requests that I see, I have had a line added saying they are limiting to about 25 per bus. We've transferred 70 passengers between 3 coaches!
Michael Glikin
01:28:56
the Chicago Tramsit Authority and nearly all other transits nationwide are doing 25 per bus if any restrictions at all
Bruce Ebmeyer
01:29:34
Ebmeyer Charter will set the precedent. We are moving whatever the group chooses, along with a release of liability.
Bruce Ebmeyer
01:30:23
Military is moving 100% capacity.
Ginny Orr
01:30:28
isn't that the whole purpose of the PPE for when you cannot be distanxt
Diane Byrnes
01:30:37
Here in Washington State we have not been stopped so far and we are doing some traveling.
Kevin Creighton
01:31:42
does the driver feel comfortable with a full bus
Ryan Sanders
01:31:49
Great Points!
Brenda Tidwell
01:32:00
In GA we leave it up to the client but we ASK the driver if they want to drive
Tom Giddens
01:32:07
Very well said Jasmine!!
Kevin Creighton
01:32:29

I've heard some groups end the trip at a park and hire a food truck to provide lunch or dinner for the group.
Jasmine Sayah
01:36:24
That’s fantastic! So happy to see her this morning on TV with that beautiful bus :)
Brenda Tidwell
