U.S. Senator Jerry Moran, R-Kan., will be the keynote speaker at the 2019 Auto Care Legislative Summit, the Auto Care Association’s biennial Washington, D.C., fly-in. The senator will address attendees during the Keynote Breakfast from 7-8 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.
“With over three decades of public service, Senator Moran offers a unique, pragmatic perspective on public policy and the role of government,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association. “He has proven to be a true ally to the auto care industry and the people of Kansas are lucky to have him as their senator.”
As the current chairman of the Subcommittee on Manufacturing, Trade and Consumer Protection, Sen. Moran oversees numerous issues of interest to the auto care industry, including free trade, data privacy and consumer protection. The senator also serves as chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies and sits on both the Indian Affairs and Veterans’ Affairs Committees.
At the Keynote Breakfast, the senator will share stories of his time on Capitol Hill and discuss the Senate’s legislative agenda for the remainder of this Congress.
