This is the TDMST Weekly Round-Up of news affecting professional truck drivers, written by Vicki Simons for the week ending April 28, 2018.
URGENT: Are you concerned about trucker wages and possibly never being able to earn anything other than cents per mile?
Then call your Congress member today and ask him/her to vote NO on the Denham Amendment in H.R.4 (FAA Re-authorization bill).
It will be voted on TONIGHT, April 26, 2018, in the U.S. House.
Call 202-224-3121, connect with your Representative's office, and say something like: "Say NO to the Denham Amendment in HR 4, the FAA Re-authorization bill."
