OVERSIGHT-MOTOR CARRIER ACT OF 1980

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1982

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON SURFACE TRANSPORTATION,
COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC WORKS AND TRANSPORTATION,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, at 10:20 a.m., in room 2247, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Glenn M. Anderson (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Mr. ANDERSON. The meeting of the subcommittee will come to order.

The Subcommittee on Surface Transportation convenes today to meet the statutory requirement of the Motor Carrier Act of 1980 that oversight hearings be held annually for 5 years.

Last year's hearings on the subject were both interesting and useful. Considerable testimony was received approving of the action this Congress took in passing the Motor Carrier Act. Those concerns which were expressed were directed not at the then recently enacted law, but rather at its implementation.

Now that another year has passed, the industry, concerned parties, and the Congress have experienced 2 years of living under regulatory reform. I suspect that in this second year the perceptions of interested groups have become more crystallized. The views and thoughts expressed today will be, I would presume, voiced in language that is more certain than that which we heard last year. It will be the task of this subcommittee to receive, sift through, and anlayze this testimony in order to assess the act's impact.

The subcommittee will hear today from representatives of the Department of Labor, the General Accounting Office, the American Trucking Associations, the Teamsters, the Department of Transportation, and the Interstate Commerce Commission. An additional hearing date will be announced in the near future.

Before we call our first witnesses, I have two letters from two Congressmen; Don Mitchell, with a letter expressing a constituent's

a views that he wants in the record, and also a letter from Robert Kastenmeier, a Member of Congress with a similar letter expressing some concerns about the act. With no objection, these will be made a part of the record.

[blocks in formation]

I am enclosing a letter sent to my office by Mr. Louis J.
Alimena, President of Local Union Number 707 of the Highway and
Local Motor Freight Drivers, Dockmen and Helpers concerning the
deregulation of the Trucking Industry.

It is my understanding that your Committee plans to hold a
hearing on this subject June 15th. I wanted you and your
Committee to have the benefit of Mr. Alimena's thinking during
your discussions.

Sincerely,

An Olitalul

Donald J. Mitchell
Member of Congress
