A petition filed to the Department of Transportation (DOT) by livestock groups is seeking more flexibility to hours of service regulations.
Transporting Livestock Across America Safely (TLAAS) reintroduced in Congress to help reform Electronic Logging Device (ELD) and hours of service rules for livestock haulers.
Transporters of livestock can still use paper logs while the government is shut down and a spending bill is waiting to be approved in Washington DC.
The Senate passed an extension to Electronic Logging Device (ELD) implementation for livestock haulers that would potentially give more time for regulators and Congress to fix hours of service rules.
The House of Representatives has debuted their own Transporting Livestock Across America Safely Act, which is similar to the Senate version and grants greater hours of service flexibility to livestock
Two U.S. Senators proposed a bipartisan bill that would allow for reform of the hours of service and Electronic Logging Device regulations while also delaying enforcement.
