FleetPride Hosts Congressional Delegations at 5 Locations

The purpose of the visits was to emphasize FleetPride's role in the country's supply chain, and to advocate for H.R. 906, The REPAIR Act.

FleetPride, Inc., the nation’s largest distributor of aftermarket heavy duty parts and service, recently welcomed local U.S. Representative Beth Van Duyne (TX), U.S. Representative Larry Bucshon (IN), U.S. Representative Diana Harshbarger (TN), and U.S. Representative Rick W. Allen (GA), as well as a staff member for U.S. Representative Kelly Armstrong (ND), to five of its locations.

FleetPride said the purpose of these congressional delegation visits was twofold:

  1. Emphasizing FleetPride’s Purpose: FleetPride said it Keeps the Country Running. As a critical link in the transportation industry and in the country’s supply chain, FleetPride said it ensures that trucks and trailers are well-maintained, enabling goods to flow smoothly across the nation.
  2. Advocating for H.R. 906, the REPAIR Act: During their visits, the members of Congress engaged in meaningful discussions about the importance of H.R. 906. This legislation aims to ensure vehicle owners have access to data relating to their motor vehicles, critical repair information, and tools, and to provide choices for the maintenance, service, and repair of their vehicles, and for other purposes.

FleetPride Senior Vice President and General Counsel Baron Oursler expressed his appreciation for these congressional visits. “We understand how busy our elected officials are and are grateful for their interest in our business. When trucks roll smoothly, businesses thrive. Our focus on service and parts contributes significantly to our economic vitality as a country. FleetPride’s dedication to excellence aligns with the Congressional strategic vision for a robust transportation network. H.R. 906 is a big step in that direction, and we appreciate these leaders taking the time to hear our views on this important piece of legislation.”
