Highway to Headache: Federal Regulations on the Small Trucking Industry
The trucking industry plays a critical role in the United States economy. America’s businesses rely on the trucking industry to transport and deliver all types of goods and products. Many trucking companies can be as small as a one-person business and are subject to many of the same federal requirements as large trucking companies, including transportation safety regulations, environmental regulations, worker safety regulations, and labor regulations. Industries that rely on the trucking industry or use trucking as part of their business model can also be subject to many of the same regulations. This hearing will examine how federal regulations affect the small trucking industry and explore ways to provide regulatory relief to the industry.Attachments
