The association asked Congress to: enact a national 65 mph speed limit and govern truck speeds at 65 mph or slower; increase funding for the Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay program; support national fuel economy standards for medium and heavy-duty trucks; implement financial incentives in the way of tax credits or grants to expedite the introduction of idling reduction equipment; invest in infrastructure improvements to fix the nation's most critical bottlenecks; fund research and development in new technologies that will improve average fuel consumption and generate greater fuel efficiency; and promote the use of more productive truck combinations resulting in fewer truck miles traveled.
