Trucking — House-Passed Appropriations Bill Would Stop Burdensome Trucking Regulations

The U.S. House of Representatives on June 9, approved the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (THUD) appropriations bill by a vote of 216-210. The bill contains an FASA-supported provision that will continue a moratorium preventing burdensome Hours of Service (HOS) regulations on truckers from going into effect until they are proven to have a safety benefit. The Senate Appropriations Committee will consider the bill in the coming weeks.
