Industry News and Advocacy

TIA joined with fellow members of the Small Business Legislative Council (SBLC) to comment on proposed updates to federal overtime regulations. The Trump Administration proposed a new rule in March, which would fully rescind the 2016 Obama Final Rule on this issue (currently under stay from a Federal Court and continued litigation), and increase the salary level tests for exempting certain employees from overtime pay.

Education

The topic of automatic trucks appears at times like a gee-whizz fantasy. It could happen someday, but too far out for today's industry to worry about. In this webinar, TIA's transportation economist Noël Perry takes a closer look at this phenomenon and will speculate on how we will get from here to there. His conclusions, as usual, include some big surprises, in this case in two important ways: Highway automation is more about cars than trucks. That's one. And two: there are some powerful intermediate steps in this change that will be requiring your attention much sooner than you think. Tune in to find out! 

When: Wednesday, June 12, 2-3PM EST. Presented by: Noël Perry
