NEWS ALERT! Important Legislative Update
Two important amendments are being offered to the FAA Reauthorization Bill up for approval this week:
(1) The Denham Amendment – sponsored by ATA, this amendment would apply federal preemption to rest and meal breaks in California. Opposition from OOIDA, the Teamsters and safety groups has surfaced. The legislation is sorely needed.
(2) The Duncan Amendment – sponsored by Congressman John Duncan, supported by the TIA and is an improved version of its previously introduced hiring standard proposal.
Both Amendments would offer needed relief to shippers and brokers and should be supported. Contact your Senators and Congressmen through this webiste - Motor Carrier Regulatory Reform Coalition www.mcrr.net.
