Legislative Policy Committee

The Legislative Policy Committee (LPC) identifies and prioritizes legislative issues that could enhance or negatively affect dealer interests. The LPC evaluates and discusses each issue, then establishes policy and legislative recommendations to the CADA Board for approval.

The LPC is composed of CADA member dealers who are interested and willing to actively lead and participate at the Colorado state capitol to personally discuss issues of concern with their legislators.

Committee members actively develop relationships with state legislators and other state-elected leaders. Together with the CADA lobbying team, the LPC promotes our legislative policies as constituents AND industry leaders.

The LPC welcomes all dealer members. During the Colorado Legislative Session — which runs from January through early May — the committee meets at least every month. After that, the committee meets every quarter.
