Today, the House began consideration of H.R. 22, the DRIVE Act. The legislation would reauthorize the Federal Highway Trust Fund as well as a number of transportation-related programs for six years. The House will be considering amendments tonight and will likely vote on final passage later this week. The Senate has already passed legislation, and after House consideration and passage, negotiations will continue in a conference committee to determine how the program would be funded.

Along with C.H. Robinson, our strategic partners in Western Growers Transportation Program, two recent videos have been produced that highlight the benefits from members’ use of the program. The videos, featuring The Wonderful Company and Dulcinea, function as testimonials to the reliability of the program and are being featured on both C.H. Robinson’s and WGs’ web and social media pages.
