Monthly Update

June-  This month State Chairman Terry Todd and James Hoskins attended the Southeast Regional Meeting in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  It was a great turn out and there were many topics discussed.  The hours of service law is still being worked out  between the carriers and the union.  Hopefully we will be able to give more information out soon on how everything will work once the law goes into effect.  In the Legislative Representatives class, we gave an overview of our limo bill in Arkansas, so the other states could have an idea on how we ran our bill here.  If anyone has issues, questions, or anything else we may assist you on feel free to contact us.  Have a great month and we will update you again in July.
