The EPA is holding a roundtable discussion regarding new proposed emissions standards for large trucks. We’ll discuss what aspects of the regulation they’re likely to cover and more. Also, when we talk about drug problems, people typically think about the serious stuff, but rarely think of one of the most addictive drugs of all – nicotine. We’ll hear about smoking and its consequences. And a bill nearing passage in Colorado would give those not eligible for workers’ comp an alternative, while Pennsylvania considers bringing toll collection into the 21st Century.

We’ll hear about smoking, its consequences and its link to more serious addictions from Dr. John McElligott of the St. Christopher Fund. Also, the EPA has proposed new nitrogen oxide emission standards for trucks. OOIDA has issued a Call to Action, and we’ll have the details.
