Truck Speed-Limiter Bill Introduced in House

On May 25, Georgia Democrat Lucy McBath and New York Republican John Katko introduced the Cullum Owings Large Truck Safe Operating Speed Act.

Few details are yet available about the bill. However, a similarly named bill introduced in the Senate in 2019 directed the Department of Transportation to implement regulations to require all new commercial motor vehicles with a gross weight of 26,001 pounds or more to be equipped with speed-limiting technology, any existing speed-limiting technology already installed in such vehicles to be used while in operation, and the speed-limiting technology to be set to a maximum speed of 65 mph.

This new bill introduced will have a maximum speed limiter of 70 mph and just as elogs raised the value of pre 2000 year model trucks I am sure if passed this to will raise the value of used trucks.
