Trucking Industry Prepping for Reauthorization Bill

The American Trucking Associations is preparing to focus their upcoming annual meeting on advocacy, promoting their agenda on the TEA-21 Transportation Reauthorization bill to Congress and the Obama administration.

"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."
