Many issues important to the trucking industry must go down a political road.  The Missouri Trucking Association (MoTA) stays actively involved each session with the interests of the trucking industry in mind.  MoTA continues to have great success at the Missouri Capital with efforts being largely supported by the Mo TRUCK PAC, the political action committee of the MoTA. Funds raised at the SAMCC events help with the legislative cost of keeping all Missouri truckers’ voices heard in Jefferson City.
