CVSA Sends Letter to Chairman DeFazio and Ranking Member Graves on Legislative ELD Exemptions
On March 22, 2019, CVSA sent a letter to House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) expressing opposition to legislative efforts, like the Small Carrier Electronic Logging Device Exemption Act, to exempt portions of the motor carrier industry from the electronic logging device (ELD) requirement. The letter outlines the impact of exemptions on highway safety, the challenges they present to the law enforcement community and the impracticalities of the exemption outlined in the Small Carrier Electronic Logging Device Exemption Act.
