Trucking Thanks Congress for Including Common Sense Hours Fix in Omnibus
Arlington, Va. – Today, American Trucking Associations thanked Congress – particularly Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) – for the common sense fix to two unjustified provisions of the current hours-of-service restart rules in this year’s omnibus spending bill.
“We have known since the beginning that the federal government did not properly evaluate the potential impacts of the changes it made in July 2013,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “Now, thanks to the hard work of Senator Collins and many others, we have a common sense solution. Suspending these restrictions until all the proper research can be done is a reasonable step.”Trucking Thanks Congress for Including Common Sense Hours Fix in Omnibus
