Strong differences remain over ELDs

With the clock winding down towards the imposition of the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate on December 18, differences of opinions over the impact of those devices on trucking remain heatedly split.

Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36), who authored legislation to try and delay the imposition of the ELD mandate for two years – dubbed H.R. 3282, the ELD Extension Act of 2017 – took to the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday to implore President Trump to ask for a 90-day waiver from the regulation for the entire industry.
