Bill would establish a national freight planning process, financed through a 12-cent increase in diesel taxes and use of federal funds.
Freight plan bill favors rail, bill would increase truck weight, a milestone truck is delivered, carrier safety rataings are available and much more industry news items are featured.
Trucking is not mentioned in the bill, which focuses on rail, ports and intermodal infrastructure.
