WASHINGTON (May 25)—In anticipation of Rep. Billy Tauzin's call for further hearings on the Firestone tire-Ford Explorer situation, the Tire Association of North America is increasing its profile on Capitol Hill, TANA announced. The association has retained the lobbying firm of Ryan, Philips, Utrecht and MacKinnon to aid the effort led by Becky MacDicken, TANA Government Affairs director, TANA General Counsel Jeff Tanenbaum and TANA's Government Affairs Committee. "We want to make sure that any potential legislation, if any is introduced, does not cast too wide of a net," MacDicken said in a news release. "Clearly no one in the industry or on the Hill wants to have innocent tire dealers targeted by legislation."
