They finally did it. The Senate passed the infrastructure package. 1.2 Trillion dollars. That's a lot of fingers and toes! Some good things that occurred are no increase in minimum liability insurance, an under 21 apprenticeship program, automatic emergency braking on new large trucks and no mandate for side underride guards. The most disappointing deletion was funding for commercial vehicle parking. This important topic will need to be addressed at some point. Someone has to realize the affect on safety of our most important asset - the drivers.
