Administration Announcement on Mexican Trucking Program Very Close

During a hearing of the Senate Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee Thursday, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said the Obama Administration was “very close” to announcing a plan that would resolve the cross-border trucking dispute with Mexico.

“Back in March, I urged you and the administration to move quickly to craft a plan to resume cross-border trucking with Mexico in a way that would address the safety concerns raised during the pilot and end the tariffs imposed by the Mexican government,” Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash) said during Thursday’s hearing.

Murray wanted to make sure the fabled proposal was really near this time around, interrupting LaHood with, “Sooner than soon?” He responded saying, “It is closer than soon.”
