In his second meeting of its type in the past 6 months, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) met with a group of owner-operators on January 17, lamenting to the Senator their beefs with hours of service regulations and the U.S. DOT’s electronic logging device mandate.

Shelli Conaway, one of the drivers who met with Cruz, told the Hammer Lane Radio network on that Cruz and aides have asked for further information from the participants in order to assess potential legislative efforts in future. The Senator “wants us to come up with general ideas” for revisions to the hours of service, training protocols and parking fixes, Conaway said.
