    Trucking Open Forum - Special Alert to discuss Transportation Bill Amendment

    in Current Events

    Trucking Open Forum - Special Alert to discuss Transportation Bill Amendment
    Special Show Alert Tuesday 11/17/15
    6PM ET  Call in 347-826-9170


    The House Transportation bill has an amendment, which, if approved in the final version of the House and Senate Transportation bill, could be damaging regarding wages of professional drivers. It's called the Denham Amendment 114-21.
    Last week the Truth About Trucking network set out an all out campaign to bring awareness to this harmful amendment.
    Listen to Saturdays Denham Amendment segment on AskTheTrucker "Live' here


    We have been joined by many, including TruckersUnited.org, the Professional Truckers Association Group, and thousands of drivers throughout the country.  But still many are confused as to what the repercussions affecting drivers will be.

    Today, OOIDA announced their strong opposition to the Denham Amendment sending a call to action to their members, claiming  it would unravel mandated fair-pay for drivers and would empower large carriers to further reduce driver wages. THey also said that It would also gut the ability for states to address critical items like payment for detention time, safety training and medical examinations or other costs associated with licensing procedures.


    Tonight we have an additional to our regularly scheduled show to discuss the Denham Amendment and further explain what it would mean to professional drivers if added to the final version of the Transportation bill.

    Americans Unite to Stop Toll Roads and Save the American Freeways

    in Politics

    Attention American Transportation Leaders - It is Time to Stop Toll Roads and Restore our Freeways!


    Guests: Terri Hall - Texans for Toll-free Highways


    Patrick Hand - Stop  the Tolls


    Americans know there are better ways to fund highways than TOLL TAXES.  We know everyone's cost of living goes up with the cost of transportation. We know everyone benefits from transportation regardless of how many miles they drive on the highways.  We know it is wrong for our local, state and federal representatives and quasi-governmental agencies to sell-off public infrastructure to foreign corporations. We know "Public Private Partnerships" are nothing more than a major source for governmental corruption.  We know these individuals/representatives, quasi-governmental agencies and P3s are NOT working in the best interest of the American people. We know it is up to us to demand changes in transportation. 


    The time is now for Americans to come together to shut-down toll roads across the U.S.A.  We can shut-down the toll roads if we work  together.


    Here are some of the grassroot groups working to stop toll roads:



    Louisiana  http://www.stopthetolls.org/
    Texas http://tollfreehighways.com/author/thall/
    Texas http://www.texasturf.org/about
    Florida http://rollbacktolls.com/
    North Carolina  http://wideni77.org/
    Texas  http://texansagainsttolls.com/
    North Carolina  http://www.stopthetollroad.com/index.html
    Illinois - Indiana  http://www.openlands.org/illiana
    North Carolina http://www.notollsi95.com/position


    If you are ready to take back our country and our freeways, contact these groups and get involved!

    in Education

    Kylla Lanier, Deputy Director of Truckers Against Trafficking will join us as our special guest to discuss the continual efforts of the organization in their drive throughout the trucking industry to combat domestic sex trafficking.


    Discussion will include their first-of-its-kind mobile exhibit, known as The Freedom Drivers Project which provides an insight look into human trafficking as well as offering educational information for trucking professionals and the general public as well.


    We will also cover the recent story of a young lady kidnapped out of Iowa and was rescued after Conway Truckload driver, Kevin Kimmel "made the call" which also led to the arrest of her traffickers. The action taken by Mr. Kimmel was recognized on April 3, 2015 when Truckers Against Trafficking presented the driver with their 2015 Harriet Tubman Award.


    Truckers Against Trafficking also received the Suzanne McDaniel Memorial Award for Public Awareness as part of the annual Congressional Victims’ Rights Caucus Awards on April 22 at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. Representatives from ATA, TCA, NATSO and OOIDA were in attendance.


    Mrs. Lanier will share the organization's plan for an upcoming new training DVD, more in-depth educational and training portals and much more offered by the 501(c)3 organization.
