The Arkansas Trucking Association welcomes the introduction today of the HOURS Act – common sense legislation that will deliver much needed technical adjustments to hours of service (HOS) regulations while continuing to ensure safety on our nation’s highways.

Proposed by Arkansas congressman Rick Crawford (R-1), along with Reps. Bruce Westerman (R-3) and Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.), the HOURS Act (Honest Operators Undertaking Road Safety Act) offers narrow and reasonable changes that allow for flexibility as professional drivers face distinct challenges as well as uniformity in certain types of operations. The bill also eliminates record keeping redundancy and provides a framework for efficiency in future regulatory changes.
