The Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee consists of 20 members and they met in June to discuss motor carrier safety programs and safety regulations.  This committee consists of truckers, law enforcement officers, public safety nonprofits, union officials, and truck and bus trade organization executives.  In the meeting they talked about recommendations, looked at  regulations that need to be added, what news to be updated, what is unnecessary, and which has costs that outweigh the benefits.  This meeting was in the hopes of making some much needed changes that have been on hold.  One of the committee members, Todd Spencer who is the Executive Vice President of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, agrees that the new administration is offering an opportunity to change the current bad regulations that are in act.  Here is a list of Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC) Members.
