Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA) plans to introduce the Right to Haul Act of 2017 soon. He is currently seeking cosponsors for the Bill and the American Loggers Council is asking that you please contact your Congressman or Congresswoman and ask that they contact Jay Kronzer in Congressman Brat’s office to sign-on.
The bill exempts weights for agricultural loads traveling on Federal highways if state agricultural regulations are met; individual state weight limitations for an agricultural commodity [including forestry] that are applicable to State highways shall be applicable to the Interstate System within the state.
