Committee approves stop sign for Mexico-based trucks

7/31/2008 

WASHINGTON — The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee gave the go-ahead Thursday for a bill to stop long-haul trucking between Mexico and the United States.  

The bill, HR 6630, orders the Department of Transportation to terminate the cross border demonstration program no later than its Sep. 6 anniversary date. It also forbids the Secretary of Transportation to grant authority for Mexico-based trucks to travel beyond the border commercial zones without authorization from Congress.

The bill passed on a voice vote by the committee. More from The Trucker

You know the drill folks!  Let’s burn up the phone lines in Washington in support of this bill.  Finally, something out of Congress that is making sense.

(As a reminder why we don’t need this program, enjoy “Ode to Juan and Moe” performed by Truck It Records’ Joey Holiday and co-written by ATAW’s commander, Mark R. Taylor)
