An Oklahoma district court has issued a temporary restraining order blocking new rules that would prohibit trucking companies from using third party agents to establish Oklahoma as their base state under the International Registration Plan.

ProCert Inc., an Oklahoma-based transportation consulting firm that offers registration services, has asked the court to declare the rules unconstitutional because they violate the trucking industry’s rights of freedom of contract, substantive due process and equal protection.
ProCert President and CEO Chris Gorman called the rules “ill conceived” and “unfair and burdensome to the trucking industry.” In a press release the company said the “implementation of the new rules promote no legitimate state interest, but are the result of an attempt by large, out-of-state commercial interests, who have lobbied the IRP for years to use the IRP to put their small competitors out of business.”
A hearing is scheduled for March 7.
