National Tank Truck Carriers said Wednesday it has asked Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to stop two rulemaking processes aimed at tank trucks.
The first rulemaking would require a ban on gasoline in loading lines on cargo tanks, also known as wetlines, NTTC said.
The other would turn over cargo tank regulatory responsibilities to a private third party and restrict public access to the regulatory process, NTTC said.
In a statement, NTTC said it considers the rulemakings â€œunnecessary and even counterproductive to safety.â€�
