This summer, SPL president Misty Sexton joined Maryland Motor Truck Association members for the American Trucking Association’s Day on the Hill. They met with senators, congressmen and staff members to push for their support of several bills that are in direct support of the trucking industry.
We’re proud to announce that thanks to our efforts, these bills were cosponsored and have been referred to committee! We argued for the use of grant funds and college savings accounts for trades education, for improved truck parking, streamlining of credentialing procedures and a fast-track for veterans with previous driving experience. The petroleum industry and trucking are tightly intertwined and we’re pleased to lend a voice!
