Russ Caudell and Jeff Lantz, owners of C. L. Services, Inc. traveled to Capital Hill last week with the TIA, Transportation Intermediaries Association. The purpose of their trip was to advocate for the Motor Carrier National Hiring Standard Act (H.R. 1120) and The Transportation & Logistics Reform Act (S. 1454).
