During the past few weeks, my two transportation staffers, Zach and Don, worked hard to help me create an amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration Re-Authorization Bill of 2018. Today, my colleagues in the House of Representatives voted to allow my amendment into the bill. This amendment will help create a hiring standard for freight carriers so we can be positive that only safe and insured drivers are on our highways. This amendment is simply about safety with our interstate commerce and protecting commuters on the road. I am hoping the bill is also passed by the Senate so it can be brought to President Trump's desk for final approval.
