Coming Jan. 17: LiveOnWeb's 2018 Government Outlook

2018 is shaping up to be a potentially transformative year on the government front for the freight transportation industry, starting with an infrastructure plan that trucking companies hope will lead to improved roads, less congestion and more efficient deliveries.

On our Jan. 17 LiveOnWeb program, “2018 Government Outlook,” we will dissect the prospects for infrastructure reform and how funding for the program might impact trucking. But we’ll also tackle four other hot topics that regulators or legislators have on their plates this year:

• Stepped-up enforcement of the ELD mandate beginning April 1

• Efforts aimed at having a meal and rest break rule prevail nationally

• The inclusion of trucking in any self-driving policies being considered

• And other regulatory topics, including CSA reform, speed limiters and sleep apnea.
