Williams and Kidd Meet with DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx

Washington, D.C.

Trucking Alliance chairman Steve Williams and Lane Kidd, the Alliance’s Managing Director, held a 45-minute meeting with Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx on July 18, 2014 in Washington, D.C. Topics of discussion included various highway safety initiatives supported by the Alliance.

“Secretary Foxx was gracious and thanked the Alliance for advancing an agenda that embraces new technologies to improve highway safety,” said Kidd.

Kidd said they stressed the need to aggressively push the creation of a drug and alcohol clearinghouse and the electronic logging device mandate, despite efforts by some industry sectors to slow them down.
