Email Newsletter: August 17, 2019 Part II - Vol 129 No 130

This Newsletter is issued because NorthAmerican Transportation Association recognizes that our members need to prepare for potential problems in the transportation field. Businesses of all sizes must stay informed regarding regulatory and legislative change at both the State and Federal level.

Since our membership consists mainly of small to medium motor carriers, this newsletter includes noteworthy developments that might well affect transportation issues in your State with Federal rulings and/or state legislatures. 

NTA’s Hi-way Hi-Lites is intended to enlighten our members as well as our transportation friends on developments within the transportation-related industry and should not be regarded or relied as any type of legal advice or opinion.

Join the NTA and let us help you shine. For questions, please contact NTA President & CEO Wayne Schooling at or 800-805-0040. 

Remember, our motto is  "Helping Others to Succeed in Business"
