Agricultural and Food Transporters Conference Letter of Support
Dear Administrator Martinez:
I write on behalf of the Agricultural and Food Transporters Conference (AFTC), and other interested agricultural organizations, to express sincere appreciation for your careful examination of the American Trucking associations' petition seeking a determination that California's meal and rest break rules are unenforceable under 40 U.S.C. § 31141. California's state meal and rest break standards place an unreasonable burden on interstate commerce to the detriment of highway safety, and we call on you to swiftly grant the trucking industry's petition.
