Looking at Trucking from both sides
Friday 6PM ET
AskTheTrucker “Live” Open Forum will take a look at both sides of the trucking industry, the professional driver side as well as the trucking association side.
Our guest for tonight is Joe Rajkovacz, Director of Governmental Affairs and Communications for the Western States Trucking Association.Prior to his present role at WSTA, Joe has been a company driver, small business owner operator, and Regulatory Affairs Specialist for OOIDA.
Mr. Rajkovacz will share his views for many of the issues which face the trucking industry associations and will also address professional driver concerns, including wages, ELDS, turnover, retention, and the twice defeated Denham Language which has threatened to override states’ rights. Had the Denham Language passed in the FAST ACT or the FAAAA reauthorization bill, the Federal Government would have preempted states rights to pay drivers for all time, including detention time and rest breaks.
Denham Language is anticiapted to be included in the up and coming THUD bill in 2017.
Callers are welcome to join in the conversation and discuss the topics with us.
