  • Three senators introduced legislation Thursday called the DRIVE-Safe Act, in an effort to address the nationwide truck driver shortage by allowing drivers over 18 but under 21 to cross state lines after going through a training program.
  • The Senate legislation is a companion bill to one introduced in the House in March by Republican Congressmen Duncan Hunter, Calif., and Trey Hollingsworth, Ind. The House legislation has 71 cosponsors, including 66 Republicans and five Democrats.
