Trucking bill offers additional ag exemptions

Reps. Angie Craig (D., Minn.) and Lloyd Smucker (R., Pa.) introduced the Responsible & Efficient Agriculture Destination (TREAD) Act to provide for an additional 150-air-mile exemption from Hours of Service (HOS) regulations on the back end of hauls for those transporting agricultural commodities.

The TREAD Act would ensure that the current HOS exemption that applies to the 150-air-mile radius from the source of an agricultural commodity adds the same 150-air-mile radius flexibility to the back end of a trip, or the destination. The bill also clarifies that this exemption would apply in every state year-round, as agricultural, and specifically livestock, commodities move across this country every day.  Read more
