We have received word from Chairman Conyers that the Judiciary Committee has decided to postpone the hearing originally scheduled for Thursday morning on our auto dealers issue given the pendency of ongoing negotiations between dealer groups and the two automakers. Please note that the hearing is postponed and not cancelled, meaning that it could be rescheduled at any time.
We understand that many of you were planning to come to Washington and attend as part of our show of support for the dealer cause. We regret that you may have been inconvenienced, but we only just now (6PM Eastern) have learned that the hearing would not take place on Thursday.
Chairman Conyers and other Members of the Judiciary Committee continue to be very interested in the dealer issue and we are encouraged by their willingness to dig deep into the issue and to study all its facets from our perspective.
We will keep you informed of any new developments as they arise.
