U.S. House of Representatives slows down controversial border trucking program

Landline magazine is reporting that The U.S. House of Representatives have passed a bill slowing down a controversial trucking program.

The bill is called the Safe American Roads Act of 2007. If passed into law, the Safe American Roads act would put limits on the Department of Transportation cross-border pilot program.

The pilot program is designed to open up the border for more truck traffic from Mexico.

The bill is written to add oversight and limits to the trucking program, including how many Mexican trucks could operate on American roads.
