General GIADA Legislative Policies

  • GIADA supports legislative changes that improve and enhance the dealer licensing process and promote honesty and fair dealing while protecting Georgia dealers from unfair competition from unlicensed individuals.

  • GIADA supports measures that enhance government efficiency and maximize benefits to Georgia citizens and the industry at the lowest cost.
  • GIADA supports measures that increase enforcement efforts against those who operate in the industry illegally, unlicensed, and who defraud dealers and the public.
  • GIADA supports measures that increase enforcement of current laws.
  • GIADA opposes any measure that would impede the ability of a dealer to operate a lawful business while providing affordable and reliable transportation to hard working Georgian’s who otherwise may not be able to obtain reliable transportation.
  • GIADA supports any measure that encourages the American system of free enterprise.
