WASHINGTON, D.C. — President George W. Bush has sent a letter to the Senate Appropriations Committee chair promising to kill and bill that aims to block Mexican trucks from U.S. highways.

After a North American Free Trade Agreement panel ruled against the U.S. practice of restricting truckers from south of the Rio Grande to a ‘commercial zone’ within 20 miles of the border, Bush set January 2002 as the date to allow total access.

The subcommittee has approved a nearly $60 billion spending bill that allows for the free movement of Mexican rigs, however they included tougher safety requirements for the foreigners.
