On Thursday, October, 20th, SCI’s President and General Counsel, Pete Fidopiastis as well as Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer Ryan Wise, participated in an SCI Lobby Day, meeting with various congressional staff on Capitol Hill.
In their meetings with the staff for House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), as well as her colleague on Education and Labor Committee, Michelle Steel (R-CA-48), Pete and Ryan were able to voice their thoughts on upcoming legislation as well as the recently released new US Department of Labor Rule on Independent Contractor Misclassification.
SCI has long felt that the road to change in Congress is a long one, and we’re committed to fighting for that change by working with influential leaders who can make positive change happen. Our industry is unique, and SCI was able to explain the nuances that separate the Last Mile industry from both Trucking and newer Gig models. Now that SCI has a seat at the table, we look forward to working with various policy directors to craft future common-sense legislation for independent contractors.
SCI will be back on Capitol Hill again in 2023 and would like to invite others to join us. If interested, please reach out to SCI’s Director of Government Affairs, Todd Oliver, at [email protected]
