ARA Signs a Coalition Letter to Senate Opposing Motor Carrier Insurance Increase

Jul 27 2020

On July 27, ARA signed a coalition letter to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation opposing the inclusion of any increase in minimum liability coverage for motor carriers in the Senate's surface transportation reauthorization bill.

ARA and the more than 60 undersigned organizations say that any increase in insurance requirements is "wholly unnecessary, would do nothing to improve highway safety, and would have a severe negative impact on truckers, farmers and manufacturers by significantly increasing their operational costs."
