LMA is excited to report that Chairman Thune and Ranking Member Nelson of the Senate Commerce Committee (the committee under which transportation issues fall) have written a letter to the Department of Transportation expressing support for the livestock exemption petition submitted last week. This bipartisan showing of support from committee leadership speaks volumes regarding the importance of the livestock transportation issue. We anticipate additional members of Congress will follow suit in sending supportive letters. Please consider reaching out to your senators and congresspeople to encourage them to reach out to DOT!
