A long-awaited decision by the Obama administration on what to do about Mexican cross-border trucking could come as early as next month, according to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

OOIDA’s Land Line Now interviewed the secretary Friday, April 9, and asked specifically if any decision is imminent on the cross-border issue.

“Well, what we think will happen is when President Calderon, the president of Mexico, is coming to the United States to meet with President Obama in May -- I think there will be some announcements during his visit as to the way we will proceed with Mexican trucks,” said LaHood.

President Obama is scheduled to host a state dinner for Mexican President Felipe Calderon on May 19.
