An amendment was recently offered by Reps. Defazio (D-OR), Boyda (D-KS), Hunter (R-CA) and Miller (R-CA), and included unanimously in HR 3074, the fiscal year 2008 DOT appropriations bill, to prohibit the use of any funds to establish or implement the proposed Mexican-domiciled truck pilot program.

While the amendment is not yet law, I have high hopes that the current, poorly executed legislation will be killed, and killed quickly.
