ATA calls for continued ELD push

ARLINGTON, VA - The American Trucking Associations (ATA) is calling on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to continue in the push toward a December rollout of mandated Electronic Logging Devices. "Supporters of a delay are attempting to accomplish, almost at the 11th hour, what they've been unable to do in the courts, Congress or with the agency: roll back this common sense, data-supported regulation based on at best specious and at worst outright dishonest arguments," says Bill Sullivan, executive vice president - advocacy, in a blunt letter to the administration's deputy administrator. U.S. Representative Brian Babin has introduced legislation to delay the mandate by two years.
