Meeting Descriptions

Environmental Policy Committee

Committee members analyze and recommend policies that promote market-based approaches to meeting state and federal environmental requirements.  The committee examines local, regional, statewide and federal regulations, laws and proposed legislation to determine the impact on California carriers from competitive and compliance perspectives.  Committee members are expected to learn and be capable of evaluating the impact of these regulations on their own businesses.

Highway Policy Committee

Committee members review the tax and fee structure of city, county, state and federal government with respect to motor carriers and truck operations. Committee members review size, weight and permitting regulations of all levels of government and consider the efficiency and productivity impacts on the trucking industry.  Committee members also examine government regulations that impact truck operations in matters other than safety and environment, such as truck routing, customs, trade agreements and requirements on cross-border operations.  The Committee recommends policy positions in all these matters.

Kingpin Committee

Committee members are kingpins who engage in presenting the industry to local, regional, and state elected officials.  Kingpins will communicate and develop a relationship with the legislator who represents his/her place of business or personal domicile. They explain the issues and concerns of the trucking industry, attend events, and contact legislators when a call to action arises. Knowledgeable kingpins develop important outreach between the trucking industry and elected officials. Kingpins are the voice of trucking.

Safety, Security, & Human Resources Policy Committee

Committee members examine and recommend positions on safety practice, regulations and proposed or pending legislation with respect to personnel, equipment, operations and security matters. Committee members evaluated and recommend direction for Association safety programs, including the Fleet Safety Contest, the California Truck Driving Championships, and the Driver of the Month/Year Program. The Committee examines human resource issues, such as wage and hour or OSHA standards, and recommends guidance and policy direction. Committee members are expected to learn and be capable of evaluating the impact of safety, security and personnel practices in the industry and their own business.
