Just as the Denham Amendment attempted, but failed, to prevent Fair wages for truckers in last years Highway Bill known as the FAST ACT, once again the large motor carriers (ATA) have managed to slip in the same exact provision into H.R. 4441, the Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization Act, otherwise known as the FAA Reauthorization Bill.
The Act was introduced by the House of Representatives. The “AIRR” Act as it is called, is a bill designed to authorize aviation programs, but on pp 256-258, Title VI, Sec 611, labeled Federal Authority, the attack on driver wages was slipped in by these members of the U.S House of Transportation Committee.
Listen to our last show explaining the dangers of the Denham Amendment and read more via OOIDA's Fighting for Truckers page.
We believe this attack on wages exploits new CDL drivers. Attorney Christina Humphrey is our guest who will discuss Section A and B of the provisions within the FAA Reauthorization Bill.

“It’s all about Safety” These are the famous words you’ll hear whenever a call to action needs support, usually creating laws and regulations affecting professional CMV drivers.
Along with such calls for more laws will follow the lobbyisst in support, fitting their agendas.
Where is the call to action for ”Michaels Law Amendment” an Amendment to 18 U.S. Code 926A proposed by James Lamb of the SBTC? The proposed amendment, would expand the existing Federal “Interstate Transportation of Firearms” statute into a right-to-carry law for all Americans engaged in interstate commerce. According to the Department of Labor, one person is MURDERED in the transportation industry EVERY WEEK! Should the NRA be supporting this?
Next, CRST refers to safety also in their request for exemption at the FMCSA. According to CRST, allowing CLP holders (Commercial Learners Permit) to drive team, with little or no OTR driving experience, U.S. highways would be safer and more productive.
