2017 LANJ President
The Limousine Association of New Jersey (originally the Private Livery Association of New Jersey) was formed in June 1998. The organization’s roots extend back to its two original chapters: North Jersey Limousine Association (NJLA) and South Jersey Limousine Association (SJLA). In 2007 the two groups officially merged into one entity: LANJ.
The statewide coalition first was formed when SJLA members assembled a task force to seek fairer interstate commerce laws. Knowing any outcomes of this pursuit would affect their operations in New York, interest of NJLA members took hold. Ultimately, efforts of the combined organization prompted the drafting of an interstate commerce bill (H.R. 2546,107th Cong.) that ultimately became the Real Interstate Driver’s Equity Act. The RIDE Act, which became the legislation’s popular name, received bipartisan approval by the U.S. Congress in November 2002. As such, the law extends beyond New Jersey to all chauffeured transportation companies throughout the country and prohibits states or any political subdivision, other than the home licensing state, from requiring a fee or other payment requirement “on account of” the fact that a vehicle is providing pre-arranged ground transportation service.
The Limousine Association of New Jersey, which now has 140 members, was named “Association of the Year” by the industry publication Limousine, Charter & Tour (LCT) in 2013.
