On Monday, ITA board members Rocky Caylor (Cadence Premier Logistics) and Mike Cappellett (TransChicago Truck Group), along with ITA Executive Director Matt Hart, met with State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant
D-Plainfield).  ITA met with the senator to discuss trucking industry issues in her district as well as to seek her support for HB 386, a bill initiated by ITA that would save truck owners up to $400 per truck per year.

ITA is pleased to report that the senator has signed on to co-sponsor HB 386.  She is the 35th State Senator to sign on as a co-sponsor to the legislation.  The fate of HB 386 rests with the Illinois State Senate where it is being sponsored by State Senator Martin Sandoval
(D-Chicago).  The legislation has already passed the House 109-3.

Now is the time for the trucking industry to come together and demand that lawmakers repeal this fee that singles out the trucking industry.  The CDF costs truck owners up to $400/truck/year in additional fees.

Call your State Senator immediately.  Ask them to SUPPORT HB 386 and ask if they would sign on as a
co-sponsor to HB 386.  Let your voice be heard.
