PMAA Sends Letter Opposing Electronic Logging Device Mandate

Earlier this week, PMAA sent a letter in support of legislation introduced last week by Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX). H.R. 3282, known as the “ELD Extension Act of 2017," which would delay the compliance date of the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate by two years, to December 2019. The mandate requires trucking companies including petroleum marketers to switch from paper logs to an electronic logging device.

Rep. Babin's introduction of the bill followed the Appropriations Committee report on DOT funding which recommends a study on whether a full or targeted delay of the mandate is needed. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) would be required to produce the findings of the study within 60 days. On June 12, the Supreme Court announced it would not hear a lawsuit challenging the DOT ELD rule, leaving in place a lower court ruling upholding the mandate and its December 18, 2017 compliance deadline.
