On July 15, 2011, in a meeting of the House Subcommittee on Transportation Security, U.S. carriers told the federal government to slow down on “excessive, burdensome, and duplicative security rules.” Since 9-11, many programs are now in place that will minimize the risk of another attack on U.S. soil. This risk management has been causing a multiplicity of overlapping and burdensome security requirements for trucking companies.
At the meeting, the ATA Vice President of Security and Operations, Martin Rojas, offered several ideas regarding what needs to happen. He mentioned, “We don’t need more regulation, we need more cooperation.” Rojas suggested that “Congress encourage information-sharing between the public and private sectors; and improve coordination between federal agencies, many of whom already play a role in transportation security.”
