ATA Highlights Burdensome Regulations for House Oversight Committee

On June 1, ATA responded to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s recent request for ATA to highlight existing, new or proposed regulations that the trucking industry believes are burdensome or affecting industry growth.  In its letter to Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, ATA highlighted seven federal rules and one FMCSA program as being either burdensome, unnecessary, or problematic.  Three of the more significant rules highlighted by ATA are:  FMCSA’s recent Hours of Service changes; the Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s cargo tank ‘wetlines’ proposal; and, the Department of Homeland Security’s redundant security background check and credentialing requirements.  To read ATA’s letter, click here.  ATA Contact:  Dave Osiecki at dosiecki@trucking.org
