ELD Relief might be coming

Postby Faster horses » Thu May 24, 2018 2:21 pm

Livestock haulers may get some relief from ELD rules if a bill proposed by a bipartisan group of Senators moves forward in Congress.

Eleven Senators proposed a bipartisan bill that would help alleviate the strain of transportation laws such as the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) and hours of service rules for truckers hauling livestock.

The Transporting Livestock Across America Safely Act was introduced by a bipartisan group led by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on May 23.
Other Senators signing the bill include: Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Tina Smith (D-Minn.), Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Doug Jones (D-Ala.).


The full bill can be found here:

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

That would be great! You would think that it would be a slam dunk, but I have concerns that there are idiots out there that are going to make this more difficult than it should be.

Leave livestock haulers on paper logs would be the best cure

For sure. I like the KISS system. (Keep It Simple, Stupid.)

They just have to lie on paper not electronically.

I might redirect everyone’s attention: for the purpose of this forum, false statements are not called lies.
