The American Car Rental Association (ACRA) is on a mission to help drive growth and innovation in the mobility sector by bringing the privileges awarded to customers using rental companies inline with protection offered with other public transport businesses. Yesterday, ACRA took their fight to Capitol Hill to lobby support in the congressional halls for H.R.4311 - 'End Discriminatory State Taxes for Automobile Renters Act of 2019'. This bi-partisan bill, co-sponsored by Steve Cohen (D) and Steve Chabot (R), aims to introduce a federal law that will guarantee all car rental customers have the same federal protection from discriminatory state and local taxes as the customers of bus, airline, motor freight, rail and maritime industries currently enjoy.
ACRA provides a unified voice for the rental industry in America, and their previous meetings on the Hill have secured victories, such as last years passed legislation to ensure that any new taxes on car rental airport transactions are assigned to airport use only.
Now operating in four states in the USA, Green Motion understands the importance of ensuring that the taxes imposed on our industry and our customers are fair and in line with similar industries in the USA.
For a country with so much to offer it is no surprise that America has a booming tourism industry. Renting a car is one of the most convenient and cost-effective ways to travel, giving you the freedom to explore America's diverse culture and landscapes. We truly hope that this bill will be passed to keep prices as low as possible for all of our customers.
