In the next week, or so the New Jersey Senate will be debating amendments to the NewJersey Franchise Practices Act. The franchise system has been under attack for several months and we must continue combating the misinformation being spread by some manufacturers and educate our elected officials about the benefits of the automotive franchise system to consumers and the State economy. Every dealer, as well as the 35,000 men and women who work in the industry, can have a tremendous impact in helping to pass A2035/S927, if they take a few minutes to contact their Senate and Assembly representatives.Please follow the simple directions below to send letters to your Senate and Assembly representatives. Encourage your employees, friends and family to do so, as well. The process takes less than 60 seconds.

Note: We have recently changed the letters available on our grassroots campaign webpage, so even if you’ve previously sent letters, please do so again.

It’s incredibly simple:

  • Go to the NJ CAR VoterVoice Page (;
