WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators David Perdue, R-Ga., and Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., are leading a bipartisan effort to level the playing field for the transportation of agricultural products. The Agricultural Trucking Relief Act will expand the definition of an “agricultural commodity” to include horticultural and aquacultural products, promote consistency across all federal and state agencies and ease regulatory burdens on the trucking industry. This bill is cosponsored by U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy, R-La., Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Jim Inhofe, R-Okla.
