NRMCA Drops Truck Weights Bill

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Last week, Reps. Rob Woodall (R-GA) and Sanford Bishop (R-GA) introduced the Freight Restriction for Efficient and Safe Hauling (FRESH) Act which would allow trucks carrying perishable products to travel on federal highways in states where the maximum state highway weight limit is greater than the maximum federal limit. NRMCA and the Georgia Ready Mixed Concrete Association worked closely with Rep. Woodall, a long-time ready mixed concrete champion, to develop, write and introduce this legislation that will allow our members to more efficiently and safely reach job sites. NRMCA will advocate for this legislation to be included in the surface reauthorization bill.
