A U.S. House subcommittee has scheduled a May 5 hearing to assess programs at the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports.
The cross-border trucking program with Mexico, a driver screening Web site, the Illiana Expressway, IdleAire and truck-only toll lanes in Florida are among the issues featured.
The two sides will square off over driver classification aspects of the port’s drayage emissions-limiting program.
The Overdrive staff delves into the Arrow Trucking debacle, texting, driver contests, Pride & Polish, DOE funding, CARB compliance assistance, tariff modifications in the Port of Los Angeles, air emissions and much more.
The next phase will ban trucks equipped with engine model years 1993 and older from the port.
