NRMCA, Construction Industry Joins in Support of Hours of Service Reform

NRMCA last week joined the American Trucking Association and members of the Transportation Construction Coalition, including the Associated General Contractors, the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association and the American Concrete Pavement Association, in supporting H.R. 6178, the HOURS Act, introduced by Reps. Rick Crawford (R-AR-1), Sanford Bishop (D-GA-2) and Bruce Westerman (R-AR-4). This legislation would build on victories NRMCA secured for the ready mixed concrete industry in the FAST Act: increasing the air mile radius from 100 to 150 miles. The bill further underscores the need for Hours of Service and Electronic Logging Device mandate reform and will likely be part of a broader discussion and push for Hours of Service relief for the construction industry, with NRMCA advocating for ready mixed concrete-specific relief.
