Cleaning Up Trucking in Southern California

The Port of Long Beach has settled with the American Trucking Association to clean up its air, while the Port of Los Angeles is waiting to reach more comprehensive changes.

"In settling the case, Long Beach has distanced itself from the neighboring Port of Los Angeles, which is also being sued by the trucking association.

As part of its own clean air plan, the L.A. port included several elements that affect the operations of the trucking companies that serve the port, including the requirement that all drivers must be employees of logistics companies. This would eliminate independent truckers at the port by 2013."

"On Sunday, mayors Michael R. Bloomberg of New York and Cory Booker of Newark, N.J., joined Ron Dellums of Oakland in supporting Los Angeles' version of the clean truck program."
