These issues will include:
* supporting industry-wide implementation of an EOBR requirement in all commercial trucks
* promoting alternate methods for verifying mandated drug and alcohol testing procedures
* creating the congressionally-mandated drug and alcohol clearinghouse
* supporting mandatory speed limiters on trucks
* increasing the minimum financial requirements for starting a trucking company
* consideration of alternative compliance measurements for determining a trucking company's safety fitness rating.
