I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton

A federal bill has similarities to California’s AB5; another town cracks down on truck parking; and a trucker stranded on a snowy highway is rescued – it’s today’s news in trucking.

II. Driver training delay update

The FMCSA came in just under the wire in publishing the delay to the entry-level driver training rules to the federal register. Also, regulatory issues at a Senate hearing and the latest on federal automated vehicles guidance.

III. States eye speed limit rules

Elected officials in states from South Dakota to Virginia are discussing possible changes to speed limit rules. We’ll explain what’s happening where.

IV. 5G – what does it mean to you

5G – the latest in high-speed data for cell phones – could significantly change access to the internet – as well as other aspects of your daily life. Also, a bill would help veterans get a TWIC card, and the pursuit of a solution to DataQ problems.
