House Bill Eases Path to Trucking For Active Military

By Go By Trucks News, May 26, 2017
The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure approved two bills on March 24 intended to make it easier for military personnel and veterans to obtain Commercial Driver Licenses. The bills expand on the provisions already included in the 2015 FAST Act that help veterans transition to a career in trucking.
The Active Duty Voluntary Acquisition of Necessary Credentials For Employment Act provides active-duty service members and reservists access to the same training and testing standards for commercial drivers’ licenses granted to veterans.
“This is a common-sense measure that will help our brave men and women find work,” said Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif. He added, “While we hear every day that Washington is broken and compromised by partisan gridlock, we can clearly see that there are issues that both parties can get behind. This is about helping our heroes find job opportunities in our communities. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress to see this bill through.”
