Update on Mexican Trucks Coming through US Border- Senate Takes Stand Against Bush Administration

30 March 2007 at 6:33:49 PM

Background. Teamsters today:

The Senate took a stand against the Bush administration's irresponsible attempt to allow unfettered
access to America's highways by unsafe Mexican trucks, passing a supplemental appropriations bill yesterday that included a provision to stop the reckless pilot program.

 "I applaud the Senate's passage of this important provision," said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa. "We cannot allow the administration to push through this pilot program before Mexico is able to adhere to the safety and security standards outlined by Congress."
    The provision blocks funding for the dangerous pilot program, requires the Transportation Department to publish details of the plan and provide time for public comment. It also will require that the pilot project meet congressionally mandated safety and security standards. The bill now goes to a conference committee with the House.
    The amendment to the supplemental appropriations bill was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Patty Murray of Washington, Byron Dorgan of North Dakota and Dianne Feinstein of California and adopted by the Senate Appropriations Committee on March 22.
