Senate Committee Approves Their Version of Highway Bill

After Democrats on the U.S. House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee cast controversial votes to unnecessarily increase minimum liability insurance requirements, the U.S. Senate’s Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee approved a bipartisan highway bill proposal that is free of any insurance increase. The Senate version is generally more favorable to professional drivers and owner-operators, but does still contain an AEB mandate for new trucks and concerning language involving side underride guards.
