Senate Panel Includes Twin 33s in Transportation Spending Bill

Posted By YM Administrator, Thursday, June 25, 2015

Today, Senate appropriators voted to include a provision that would allow the use of twin 33-foot trailer combinations, or Twin 33s as they are often called, nationwide as part of the fiscal year 2016 transportation spending bill, according to Transport Topics. The provision, introduced as an amendment by Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., was adopted by a vote of 16 to 14, mostly along party lines. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., voted favorably on the amendment, while Appropriations Committee Chairman Thad Cochran, R-Miss., opposed it. NASSTRAC supports Twin 33s and worked to ensure the provision was included in the bill. (Transport Topics)
