Stop Playing Games With Safety: Stop the NAFTA Trucks 'Pilot'
Congress was very clear with the Bush administration: before allowing any Mexico-based trucking companies to cross into the U.S. beyond a limited border zone, it must guarantee the public's safety. But the administration has failed to meet even the most basic conditions.
Now, the Bush administration is barreling ahead with a so-called "pilot project" to allow 100 Mexico-based companies to send their trucks into the U.S. -- even though the congressional demands for safety guarantees have not been satisfied.
The Bush administration announced the "pilot project" while Congress was out for the August recess. Now that Congress is back, demand that it take action and stop the NAFTA trucks pilot program!
