Twin 33 Amendment Defeated

(via Truckload Carriers Association)

TCA would like to thank our dedicated members for your hard work over the last several days in helping us defeat a potential amendment on twin 33-foot trailers. This amendment to the House Transportation Housing and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations bill, would have mandated the use of twin 33-foot trailers nationwide. TCA members across the country made calls and sent emails to their members of Congress to urge their opposition.

The Voice of Truckload was heard loud and clear, and no amendment was offered during the full House Appropriations Committee meeting late Monday night.

None of this would have been possible without the dedication of TCA members of all sizes. TCA will remain engaged in every trucking-related issue on Capitol Hill. As we move forward, we hope that we can count on you to continue advocating for the Voice of Truckload.
