Good News for NJ Truckers: Governor Chris Christie has Vetoed the Misclassification Bill

Posted on September 10, 2013

Chris-Christie1

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) vetoed a bill yesterday that would have classified many drivers in the state as employees. The proposed bill, which was passed in May by both houses of the state’s legislature, would have put the burden of proof on carriers to prove that drivers are independent owner-operators.

The New Jersey Motor Truck Association, an opponent of the bill, claimed that thousands of owner operators would have been put out of business and that the trucking industry would have seen a drastic increase in costs if the bill was in effect.

FMCSA Announces Deadline for Freight Broker Bond Compliance

Posted on September 06, 2013

September 6, 2013

 

Last year a transportation spending law was passed, known as MAP-21, which required freight brokers and forwarders to obtain a $75,000 surety bond by October 1, 2013. The FMCSA announced yesterday that they will allow these companies an additional 60 days, until December 1, to register and file proof of their $75,000 bond.

The new legislation also requires motor carriers who occasionally broker loads to meet the bonding requirement. The FMCSA stated that they will be sending out warning notices on November 1 to any brokers and forwarders that have not registered by that time.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Secretary Barry Schoch has authorized his agency to increase the weight restrictions on about 1,000 bridges that have been found to be structurally deficient.

Schoch stated that the increased weight restrictions are due to the Pennsylvania General Assembly’s inaction on transportation funding. Reducing the weight traveling on these bridges will slow down their deterioration and preserve safety while PennDOT continues to seek funding to maintain the bridges.

For a full list of Pennsylvania’s state and local bridges and their statuses, use the following links:
