    "The woman tapped by President Joe Biden to lead the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration got one step closer to finally being installed in that position Wednesday, Sept. 22.
    Meera Joshi, the deputy administrator of the agency, appeared before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. She fielded numerous questions after making an opening statement in which she praised truckers for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic and recent natural disasters. Joshi also vowed to work with committee members to improve highway safety."
    "Questioning by members of the committee touched on a variety of issues of concern to the trucking industry including driver pay, congestion at ports, the prospect of allowing younger CDL holders to drive across state lines, and hours of service."
    "Members of the committee have 72 hours from the close of the hearing to submit questions in writing to Joshi and the other nominees. Joshi and others then have a week to respond. The committee would then vote whether to send the nominations to the entire Senate for a vote."

    Here we go, wokeness coming to the trucking industry.......its the only thing really left untouched by the lunatic guessing lots of poor, innocent afghan refugees will be placed in trucks with barely any training and working underpaid, because some jerk tells them they need freight moved for .20/mile......
