ARVC Entering Sequestration Lobbying Efforts

Editor’s Note: In the wake of the government’s sequestration, which went into effect March 1, the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) posted a lengthy news release on its website. Portions of the release appear below.

With no political solution in sight, ARVC is working alongside the U.S. Travel Association and others on several fronts to develop a strategy to help end this man-made crisis. Our coalition is:

Amplifying Travel’s Impact in the Media

Informing Congressional Leaders on Both Sides of the Aisle

Developing Research that Indicates the Sequester’s Economic Impact

There is absolutely no excuse for travelers in one of the world’s most advanced nations to suffer through a travel process that wastes their precious time and resources. With the launch of the sequester cuts, we will call on travelers to rise up and make their voices heard. We continue to point out to Congress that travel is driving post-recession recovery by creating jobs faster than the rest of the economy and that these cuts could derail our recovery.

By no means do we intend to discourage travel. It’s time for Washington to solve problems rather than make travel delays worse. We will actively monitor and proactively seek to influence action on the sequester and other issues in ways that benefit our industry and promote economic growth.

ARVC members are also invited to the National Issues Conference for an opportunity to meet face-to-face with Congress.
