House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Approves Bills to Address Supply Chain Issues
On May 23, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee held a
approving 17 supply chain-related bills. The bills now move toward consideration on the House floor. CDA weighed in with Members of Congress and the T&I Committee to support H.R. 2367, the Truck Parking Safety Improvement Act, H.R. 3013, the LICENSE Act, and H.R. 3408, the DRIVE Safe Integrity Act. Provisions of H.R. 2367 and H.R. 3013 were among the issues that CDA members advocated for in their recent Day on the Hill and CDA has long supported the DRIVE Safe Act legislation as a member of the DRIVE Safe Coalition.

The Truck Parking Safety Improvement Act and the LICENSE Act were both favorably reported while the DRIVE Safe Integrity Act was pulled from consideration before votes were held due to concerns from a few Republican offices related to speed limiters. In the interest of moving the committee mark-up forward, Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO) chose to pull back the DRIVE Safe Integrity Act to resolve those issues before advancing the bill. Chairman Graves is committed to sorting out this temporary hiccup and including DRIVE Safe Integrity in the Committee’s to-be-scheduled second supply chain mark-up.
