Oppose the "Clean Ports Act of 2010"

On behalf of undersigned members of the Clean and Sustainable Transportation Coalition, we urge you not to cosponsor the “Clean Ports Act of 2010” being circulated by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). This legislation endorses a controversial, unnecessary and counterproductive change to longstanding federal trucking rules codified in the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act (FAAAA). If enacted, this bill could unfairly force out of the industry many hard working small businesses responsible for moving much of the nation’s international commerce.
