House passes Highway 41 bill

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill introduced by Reps.Tom Petri (R-WI) and Reid Ribble (R-WI), to ensure that trucks currently using Highway 41 in Wisconsin will continue to be able to operate on it once the road becomes an Interstate. This is likely to occur early next year. Under federal law, trucks over 80,000 lbs. in gross vehicle weight cannot operate on Interstate highways. Petri and Ribble’s bill would grandfather in currently operating trucks when Highway 41 is designated as part of the Interstate system.
