NSSGA Opposes Increase in Minimum Liability Coverage in Senate’s Highway Bill

As the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation develops its title of the next surface transportation reauthorization bill, our organizations strongly discourage you from including any increase in the existing minimum liability coverage for motor carriers. An increase in insurance requirements is wholly unnecessary, would do nothing to improve highway safety, and would have a severe negative impact on truckers, farmers, and manufacturers by significantly increasing their operational costs.
