Alexandria, VA) —The American Moving & Storage Association represents national van lines, independent movers and industry suppliers, and serves as the home of the ProMover certification program. Scott Michael, president and CEO, and Dan Veoni, vice president of government affairs, comment on today’s passage of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act by the U.S. Congress.
“The American Moving & Storage Association commends Congress for passing a bipartisan, long-term transportation funding bill that will provide much-needed investments in our nation’s roads. This bill represents a victory for both moving companies and consumers,” said Scott Michael. “We are pleased to see that the legislation addresses many of the priorities we have been fighting for this year, especially higher annual funding levels over a shorter period of time. Our bridges and highways urgently need a serious upgrade that will help strengthen America’s economy. This bill makes sure that both moving company drivers and everyday Americans can have access to a more modern transportation system. We thank all our members who visited and contacted congressional offices this year for helping achieve this successful result.”
“The American Moving & Storage Association appreciates that Congress heard our calls for regulatory reform that will better protect consumers and improve safety on our nation’s highways,” said Dan Veoni. “The bill removes the flawed Compliance, Safety, Accountability scores from public view while the agency improves the program’s methodology. It also establishes a household goods working group to reduce the paperwork burden on consumers, and creates a pilot program for young veterans to drive commercial vehicles across state lines, although we believe this should be expanded to all qualified commercial driver’s license holders under the age of 21. Finally, we are glad to see that Congress will not increase the number of states allowed to impose new tolls on interstate highways, which would have added burdensome new costs on both movers and consumers.”
Scott Michael added, “The American Moving & Storage Association urges President Obama to sign the FAST Act into law without delay. Even with the passage of this bill, our work is not complete. We will continue to fight for strong consumer protections and federal policies that ensure a safe, successful moving experience for millions of people each year.”
