PHBA and the ELD Mandate

After careful research and qualified input from Washington DC, PHBA has determined the following about the ELD Mandate.

Fact: there is currently a 90 day waiver before the proposed regulations become in effect.

Fact:  there is a 30 day period open for comments.

Fact:  there is a monumental amount of misinformation about the mandate.

Fact:  it does not apply to all persons hauling livestock.

What can you as a PHBA member do?

The most effective thing that each one of you can do is contact your US Congressman and/or Senators and respectfully and intelligently discuss the issues surrounding the new regulations for livestock transportation.   Each of these officials has a Policy Director or in some cases an Agricultural Liaison he/she will be adequately equipped to listen and gain knowledge for their respective employer.  Please do this is a timely fashion.  If you do not know who your representatives are or how to contact him/her, please contact Ann Jones 404 550 2882 or jonescuttinghorses@yahoo she will be happy to supply you with the needed information.

We can work effectively to educate our elected officials.  Education is our best option to fight laws and regulations that can and will harm our Industry.
