ADVOCACY MATTERS

March, 2016

Dick in Washington DC Feb 2016The Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act (F4A) contains language prohibiting states and municipalities from enacting rules and regulations restricting or impeding interstate commerce.  22 states around the country have enacted such rules and are chipping away at the constructs of F4A.  Richard Coyle (President, Devine Intermodal and Chairman, California Trucking Association) and Mike Yadon (2016 President, California Trucking Association) joined other trucking industry professionals in a call on Washington DC to impress upon legislators the importance of solidifying and strengthening F4A and avoiding a patchwork of regulations across the country which will stymie interstate commerce.
