As part of the the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act, Congress mandated that commercial vehicles operating in interstate commerce must be equipped with electronic logging devices. To execute this mandate, FMCSA published the ELD final rule in December 2015. The ELD rule is curently scheduled to go into effect on December 18, 2017. Since its approval, OOIDA has fought against the mandate in the federal court system, the halls of Congress, and through grassroots campaigns with professionals drivers. OOIDA argues that the ELD rule:
- unfairly burdens small businesses
- will not improve safety
- violates drivers' harassment and privacy rights
- provides a flawed cost-benefit analysis
In July 2017, Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36th) introduced H.R. 3282, "The Electronic Logging Device Extension Act of 2017." The bill seeks to amend the current ELD implementation date by two years until December 2019, allowing more time to further valuate the readiness of the mandate.
