Welcome To The hotelLOBBY Grassroots Program
Your federal lawmakers affect your bottom line when they pass new laws, write burdensome regulations, and raise your taxes. Now there's an easy way for you to become involved before these new demands on your profits are signed into law: hotelLOBBY.
hotelLOBBY is an innovative online grassroots program developed by AH&LA to accelerate our members' political involvement in Congress. By using hotelLOBBY, you can establish new relationships with your own elected lawmakers to ensure that your issues and your industry's programs are included in the national debate. Whether you have only a few minutes to spare or want to be involved on a regular basis, hotelLOBBY provides the lobbying materials you need to be successful. We make it easy for you to become involved in Congress' numerous legislative campaigns.
With hotelLOBBY, you can write a concise letter and via the quick efficiency of email instantly urge your member of Congress to support lodging-friendly positions. If you're not sure who your member of Congress is or what to write about an issue, the Website will provide you with their contact information and a form letter hitting all the important points. You can also add your own thoughts to the pre-written letter to give some specific details about how the legislation will affect your own business.
Take immediate action on these important industry legislative initiatives and actions:
Ask your Senators to oppose the misnamed "Internet Travel Tax Fairness Act," a bill that is anything but fair to thousands of hoteliers
Urge your Senators and Representatives to support business travel and the millions of jobs that travelers help create when conducting legitimate business for their corporations
- Ask your Senators and Represenatative to co-sponsor the "Save Our Small and Seasonal Business Act," a bill to reform the H-2B visa process
