The Senate has passed an infrastructure bill without adopting the Kelly/Lummis parking amendment, which would have provided roughly $1 billion for truck parking projects
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.
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.
A bipartisan group of U.S. Representatives have reintroduced H.R. 2187, the Truck Parking Safety Improvement Act (formerly known as H.R. 6-10-4). The legislation would allocate hundreds of millions of dollars to expand truck parking capacity.
