Since 1969, the California Tow Truck Association has successfully defended the towing industry against harmful legislation and regulations, while lobbying for new laws and requirements that have a positive impact on our industry. We have been successful because of the CTTA’s extremely effective and highly respected team of lobbyists from Ellison Wilson Advocacy, LLC. The CTTA PAC Fund is the arm of CTTA that raises and spends money to elect or defeat political candidates and ballot measures. It is essential to CTTA’s Success at the State Capitol. There are about 10,000 special interests at the Capitol – including many that do not have the tow industry’s best interests in mind – that contribute substantial sums of money to legislative candidates. We need to ensure that the voices of CTTA’s members are heard just as loudly. We must use our collective power to support candidates who are receptive to our goals and believe in our industry, and similarly oppose those candidates who are predisposed to pass laws that would harm our businesses.

Its purpose is to ensure we have politicians in Sacramento that are aware and sensitive to the interests of CTTA’s members.
Each member’s towing business is controlled by hundreds of laws that are created and changed in the Capitol on a daily basis. Whether you would like to admit it or not, special interest groups that do not have the tow industry’s bests interests in mind spend millions of dollars each year on political candidates. We need to ensure that the voices of CTTA’s members are heard just as loudly.
I pay my membership dues. Why doesn’t the Association fund and support the CTTA PAC Fund with a portion of my dues?
Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) regulations prohibit the funding of Political Action Committee Funds (PAC FUNDS) in this manner. Donations must be voluntary in nature and cannot be mandated or accessed as a portion of your membership dues.
