The American Trucking Associations announced the hiring of Caroline Decker as its new vice president of legislative affairs. Decker comes to ATA after more than eight years of handing government affairs issues for Amtrak. Prior to that, Decker was chief of staff and legislative director to former U.S. Rep. Bob Clement (D-Tenn.) and represented the Tennessee Valley Authority.
“With nearly 20 years of experience working on Capitol Hill, both as a staffer and representing the interests of transportation, Caroline brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to ATA,” says Mary Phillips, ATA senior vice president of legislative affairs. “ATA’s members can be confident in Caroline’s ability to represent them on the many critical issues facing them in Washington.”
