LLN (4/27/21) – A member of the U.S. House of Representatives has signed a letter complaining about difficulties that local commuter railroads have finding and paying for liability insurance. However, at the same time, he’s introduced a bill that would do exactly the same thing to the liability insurance requirements for trucking operations. And owner-operators may pay the price. Land Line Now investigates. Also, all indications are that the highway bill now being assembled in Congress will call for more tolling – and congestion pricing – on America’s highways. And OOIDA has taken a stand against that provision.
