Lobbyist Phillips to Leave ATA

John Sommers II for Transport Topics

Mary Phillips, the chief lobbyist for American Trucking Associations for more than three years, will leave ATA on Jan. 7 to open her own government-affairs consulting firm.

Phillips said she has been a private consultant before and that she has been looking forward to re-establishing her business.

An ATA senior vice president, Phillips said she is proud of the role she played in MAP-21, the two-year highway bill that expires at the end of September.

ATA President Bill Graves said his organization will use Phillips Strategic Services on a consulting basis.

Phillips said the key challenge for trucking this year will be the writing of a new surface transportation funding law to replace MAP-21.

In October 2010, Phillips succeeded Tim Lynch as the federation’s chief Capitol Hill lobbyist. She also has worked for the Federal Highway Administration and the Senate Commerce Committee.
