Controversy over Mexican truck program goes to court

A plan by U.S. Department of Transportation to grant Mexican truckers greater access to American roads is praised a big win for free trade, but critics of the plan want to know more about it, and are prepared to go to court to get answers.

The Land Line website reports that the group Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety have filed a lawsuit against the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The lawsuit demands that documents about the program be released under the Freedom of Information Act.

U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-AR has also sent a letter with Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters, stating that he plans to start an inquiry about the program.
