Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: February 3, 2022 11:24 AM
From: Senator Chris Gebhard
To: All Senate members
Subject: Modernizing the Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee
In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation to modernize the Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC) originally established via Act 21 of 2001.
MCSAC is a critical advisory committee under the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation that assesses, evaluates and recommends standards for the safe operation of motor carriers, including heavy trucks, public transit buses, school buses, coach buses, etc.  This multi-disciplinary advisory committee has undertaken measures to advance motor carrier safety in this Commonwealth by advocating for more truck parking, coordinating commercial vehicle safety summits and evaluating innovations confronting the industry. MCSAC analyzed Act 21 and recommended updating the membership composition and refining the powers and duties to effectively address the safe movement of people and goods by commercial motor vehicles.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation to ensure proper consultation over motor carrier safety in the Keystone State.

Introduced as SB1094
