PennAg Hosts Discussion on ELD and FAST Act
On April 12, the PennAg Transportation Committee and PennAg Feed, Grain & Allied Industries Council hosted a joint meeting to provide an overview of and discussion on the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Rule and FMCSA's plan for its phased implementation. The meeting also included discussion about the Fixing America's Surface Transportation ACT (FAST Act), which President Obama signed on December 4, 2015. 

We are currently in the Awareness and Transition Phase, which runs from February 16, 2016 to December 18, 2017. During this time, drivers may voluntarily use ELD's which are certified and registered with FMCSA. Click here for additional information about the ELD Rule and FAST Act discussion from the April 12 meeting.
