Aurora, Colo. — The Colorado Limousine Association (CLA) held its most recent meeting October 15 at Mimi’s Café in Aurora, Colo. CLA’s meeting comes on the heels of Denver International Airport’s October 8 advisory board meeting, where a recent U.S. Federal District Court ruling was among the topics addressed. The court had decided that if a for-hire vehicle is doing business to and from the airport, it must abide by the interstate guidelines that dictate operating authority, vehicle markings, and adequate insurance.

According to CLA President Youssef Marrakchi of Centennial Transportation, the meeting was dominated by a question-and-answer session with Harry Thomas of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The Denver airport recently lowered its insurance requirements for ground transportation, so the board brought in Thomas to talk about intrastate versus interstate insurance requirements, as well as to shed light on any related issues requiring clarification.

The remainder of the meeting was dedicated to discussing association business. CLA is currently in the process of hiring an executive director, who Marrakchi says would be in charge of running CLA’s meetings, help the board with its media releases, and recruit new members.

The next CLA meeting will be held November 19.
