Congresswoman Set to Speak at NIADA

By Staff Writer May 13, 2018

Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.) will be the featured speaker for the welcome luncheon at the 2018 National Independent Automobile Dealers Association Convention and Expo, coming up June 18-21 in Orlando, Fla.

Murphy, who in 2016 became the first Vietnamese-American woman elected to Congress, represents Florida's 7th District, which includes downtown Orlando.

The former businesswoman serves on the House Small Business Committee – she is the ranking Democrat on the Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce – and has been the lead Democratic co-sponsor on several bipartisan bills aimed at promoting the interests of small businesses.

Murphy was one of 11 Democrats who in May voted in favor of repealing the CFPB's controversial 2013 indirect auto lending guidance.

She is also a member of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of House Democrats who according to their mission statement are "dedicated to pursuing fiscally responsible policies, ensuring a strong national defense for our country and transcending party lines to get things done for the American people." She is co-chair of that caucus' Fiscal Responsibility Task Force.
