Trucking rallies members behind no-toll amendment

Various trucking associations are urging their members to support a highway bill amendment to prevent tolls on existing lanes of Interstate highways. The Senate could vote on this amendment as early as this afternoon, the Truckload Carriers Assn. said today.

The amendment will be offered by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX) and Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE). Interested parties can contact their U.S. Senator to ask their support for the Hutchinson-Nelson amendment to H.R. 3.
