FAST Act—The Highway Bill That Slashed the CSA
- 21 and Under- The bill requires the FMCSA to study 18-to-21 year old CDL holders who are former members of the military or reserves. This comes in discussion of allowing these truckers to drive in interstate commerce.
- Size/Weight- No mention of truck size and weight standards made it into the discussion of the bill, although some lawmakers allegedly pushed for raising the minimum requirements.
- Tolls- The original bill called for tolling on some existing interstate lanes and for the money to be used outside the interstate system, but that didn’t make it in this updated version.
