Congressman Payne still crafting pay legislation for truckers

| 3/27/2002

Despite press reports, legislation that would pay truckers for on-duty time instead of by the mile is not yet a bill. U.S. Rep. Donald M. Payne (D-NJ) is currently crafting details of legislation that would call for on-duty pay for truckdrivers. Payne's office confirmed today that the New Jersey congressman would be the primary sponsor, but had no word of when the legislation would be introduced.
