NATM Seeks Support for Hauling-Configuration Proposal

The National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) has been working on getting language into the 2009 Transportation Reauthorization Bill that would allow light- and medium-duty trailer manufacturers to haul trailers in a double configuration from their manufacturing plant to their dealers, reducing delivery costs by half.

This configuration is currently legal for boat and car manufacturers but is only legal in seven states for light- and medium-duty trailer manufacturers.

The NATM has support from three Republican members of Congress but is looking for bi-partisan support and is encouraging member to contact the Democratic members of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.

Those with any personal connections with a member of Congress who are willing to speak on NATM's behalf, or would just like to learn more about the proposal, please contact either Pam O'Toole or Allison Malmstrom at 785-272-4433.
