The Transportation, Housing and Urban Development subcommittee has submitted its draft appropriations bill for fiscal year 2020. Several trucking-related provisions are proposed, including one that protects the 30-minute break rule within hours-of-service regulations. On Thursday, May 23, the House Appropriations Committee approved to move THUD’s appropriations bill to the full committee during a markup meeting. Although the purpose of an appropriations bill is to allocate funding for operations, personnel and other necessities, policy provisions also find their way into the text. Below are some provisions related to the trucking industry.
