Congress works on US 41 concerns

Lawmakers push allowance for heavy trucks

6:44 AM, Jul. 16, 2013
Semi-trailers travel northbound along U.S. 41 near Appleton in June. U.S. trucking legislation introduced a few weeks ago by U.S. Reps. Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac, and Reid Ribble, R-Sherwood, is scheduled for committee markup Thursday. The Wisconsin Republicans plan to push for action by the full House immediately afterward. The legislation would allow trucks currently using the highway to continue driving on it, regardless of weight, after it becomes a federal interstate. Federal law prohibits trucks weighing more than 80,000 pounds on interstate highways.
