While they say it has a low chance of passing due to the bill it's attached to I still think this should be met with harder criticism from trucking groups and owner ops in general. I don't want lawyers dictating my insurance rates.
Being backed hard by several of the largest truck lines, and basically ALL the insurance companies. Why? Economies of scale, the big fleets will only get hit with a few bucks per tractor, but this will put tens of thousands of independent O/O's and small fleets out of business. Competition killer.
