NCBA Says Livestock Hauling Bill Introduction in House a Step Closer to Fixing Hours of Service Rule

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 12:36:37 CDT

NCBA Says Livestock Hauling Bill Introduction in House a Step Closer to Fixing Hours of Service Rule National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Kevin Kester today issued the following statement in response to the introduction of the Transporting Livestock Across America Safely Act in the U.S. House of Representatives:



“The House version of the Transporting Livestock Across America Safely Act is another important step toward fixing the current Hours of Service rules for livestock haulers. The status quo presents major challenges for the beef industry and can often jeopardize the health and well-being of livestock. We are grateful that Representative Yoho and 45 bipartisan cosponsors stepped up to support the legislation.”



Background



The House version of the Transporting Livestock Across America Safely Act is the companion legislation to the Senate version of the bill, which was introduced in the Senate by Senator Bill Sasse (R-NE). For a breakdown of recent Congressional actions on ELDs/Hours of Service, please view our recent blog post.
