ATA’s On-Line Q&A on HR 1799

The American Trucking Associations (ATA) have published an excellent defense of Rep. Mike Michaud’s HR 1799 in the form of a Question-and-Answer document, “Dispelling the Myths: the Truck Weight Debate.” This document, posted at <>, responds directly to a “Fact Sheet” on the Michaud bill put out by the so-called safety advocacy organization, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, in April.

ATA skillfully defends the scientific record in support of the Michaud bill’s provisions, citing the American Transportation Research Institute’s report, Energy and Emissions Impact of Operating Higher Productivity Vehicles - Update: 2008, among other sources.

AgTEC has placed a link to “Dispelling the Myths” on our own FAQ <>.
