Title: NCBA Statement on the Modernizing Agricultural Transportation Act

WASHINGTON (May 2, 2019) – Today Jennifer Houston, president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, released the following statement in response to the introduction of the Modernizing Agricultural Transportation Act in the U.S. House of Representatives:

 

“Cattle producers are glad to see another bipartisan effort designed to provide much-needed relief for livestock haulers. This legislation demonstrates that U.S. Representatives Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Greg Pence (R-IN) are serious about addressing the implementation of electronic logging devices and the overly-restrictive hours of service rules that livestock haulers face today. We thank them and all the original co-sponsors for their support. NCBA will continue to work with members of Congress, industry groups, and the Department of Transportation on long-term solutions to our current transportation concerns.”
