Surface transportation bills moving through House and Senate

The House and Senate are working on surface transportation funding bills, which could address a number of agriculture industry priorities.

Both the House and Senate are working on surface transportation funding bills, which could address a number of agriculture industry priorities. Bills ready for floor action in both chambers primarily tackle funding for the highway trust fund, which provides funding for projects across the country and is set to run out of money in the fall.

The House version of the bill, H.R. 7, reportedly addresses needed hours-of-service exemptions for ag producers and commercial drivers license requirements for fuel transportation, as well as mandating a report on truck weight issues. Work is ongoing related to these issues in the Senate legislation, S. 1813.
