Trucking Industry Prepping for Reauthorization Bill
"The current $286.4 billion law expires in September and will require a replacement that many groups have said will need to be larger in size and scope.
For several years, ATA has been developing 'a strategy . . . for how we were going to proceed in 2009 focused principally on the reauthorization.'
That strategy is based on what ATA has called a 'three-legged stool' - seeking support for more productive trucks, reducing speed and increasing federal fuel taxes to fund freight-related infrastructure."
