NIADA Honors Texas Rep

NIADA Honors Texas Rep Featured

Rep. Roger Williams has been selected by the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association as the winner of the first NIADA Legislator of the Year award.
 The inaugural award was presented during NIADA’s National Policy Conference.
The Texas Republican is a car dealer himself, having owned and operated a dealership in Weatherford, Texas, for more than 40 years – and his father, Jack, owned it before that.
As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, Williams has led the charge for tax reform as well as reforming the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and repealing the CFPB's recently enacted rule prohibiting arbitration agreements with class-action waivers.
He is also a member of the Congressional Auto Caucus and has fought to protect the interests of the used vehicle industry and small business since winning election to Congress in 2012.
In addition to the award, Rep. Williams was presented with a contribution of $4,995 from the NIADA PAC fund.
NIADA-PAC also made contributions to Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-Texas), Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-N.C.), Rep. Scott Tipton (R-Colo.) and Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.)
