|Subject:||Annual Overweight Hauling Permits|
|In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation that will create an annual overweight hauling permit for the movement of agricultural liming materials, seed and fertilizer between March and June. This permit would allow vehicles up to 95,000 pounds to haul these materials on highways, reducing the overall truck trips needed to help farmers get ready for spring planting season. This material cannot be hauled in any other means to individual fields. Currently, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation grants similar overweight permits for the hauling of raw milk and grain.
I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as HB1232
