This week Oregon Congressman Greg Walden is hearing some tough stories from truckers in Oregon. On a trip through his District, Walden spoke with the owner of a trucking company in southern Oregon who is forced to close because of the cost of fuel and mounting state and federal regulations. "Its was pretty depressing meeting if you want to know the truth in terms of federal regulations and the price of fuel are doing as we try to get this economy going again." About a dozen trucking firm owners and executives met with Greg Walden in southern Oregon earlier this week to express the big challenges they're facing, especially with government regulations. Walden: “There's California regulations coming in that will cost $10,000 to $20,000 per truck to modify the trucks, and very complex rules coming out of Washington. That quite frankly, the people at ODOT don't understand.” Walden says he will fight for bills that will try and soften the trucking industry's pain.
