Comments on Joint Livestock and Insect Industry Exemption Request

On March 7, 2019, CVSA submitted comments to FMCSA in opposition to a joint HOS exemption application from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Livestock Marketing Association, American Farm Bureau Federation, American Beekeeping Federation, American Honey Producers Association and the National Aquaculture Association. The application requests that transporters of livestock, insects and aquatic animals be allowed to drive 15 hours in a 16-hour period instead of 11 hours in a 14-hour period.
