The U.S. House of Representatives has approved their version of the Highway Bill. Our efforts to remove the anti-trucker provisions from the bill were consistently rejected by House Democrats who clearly want to invest in trial lawyers over truckers. Rather than producing a bill that supports the hard-working men and women of the trucking industry, they chose to help their most trusted campaign contributors make even more money from suing professional drivers.
There are still several steps in the legislative process before a highway bill becomes law. We’re going to fight like hell to ensure the harmful provisions the House included are NEVER enacted.
