OOIDA asks Senate Appropriations to stay away from speed limiters in end of session proposals

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association has asked the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations to exclude language from any federal spending measures that mandates the installation of speed limiters on heavy commercial vehicles. The Association says that to do so would undermine the regulatory process and take away the public’s ability to make informed comments to an already proposed rule.
