White House help on ELD exemptions for small-business truckers sought
A new petition drive has been launched on the White House petition site hoping to convince the Trump administration to look at exempting small motor carriers and owner-operators from the electronic logging device (ELD) regulation.
“We the People of the trucking industry support and would like to see these two bills reintroduced in the House, as it will be a much-needed breakthrough for small commercial and agricultural motor carriers,” the petition reads. “H.B. 5948 to exempt motor carriers that own or operate 10 or fewer commercial vehicles from the electronic logging device mandates, and for other purposes. H.B. 5949 to exempt certain motor carriers engaged in agricultural business from the electronic logging device requirements, and for other purposes.”
A White House petition requires 100,000 signatures be obtained in 30 days from the date of posting to receive a formal review by the White House. As of Monday evening, the just-launched petition had fewer than 200 signatures.
