Are motor carriers— under federal law— under-insured?

House bill would hike mandated insurance minimum substantially

Legislation that would up the federally required insurance minimum for motor carriers nearly six-fold—from the current $750,000 to $4,442,000— is wending its way through Congress.

Introduced in the House by Rep. Mat
