ARA Asks for Help on Hours of Service

The exemption from the Hours of Service regulations is under attack once again.  As Congress begins work to reauthorize the 2010 highway bill, safety groups want the HOS exemption removed.  IFCA will be working hand in hand with our national organizations to support this reasonable and safe exemption.  To help provide needed information to Congress and the USDOT, the Ag Retailers Association has prepared a short survey regarding how the HOS is being used by our industry.  Please go to  and answer the questions as to how you utilize the HOS in your business.  Thank you.  If you see your Congressmen at any local event please mention how vital this exemption is to agriculture.  We are going to have a major battle on our hands despite the fact that we have safely utilized this exemption for the past decade.
