LLN (8/8/19) –FMCSA raises fines for several offenses. Also, a new report clears the EPA of wrongdoing in testing glider kits. Later this month, FMCSA will be at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas. Three states change laws to ease rules for truck platooning, while a push is underway to enforce rules for truck passengers. Louisiana gets a shot in the arm for state infrastructure, and a new Oklahoma law would end trains blocking traffic. We have information about upcoming truck shows.
