A letter signed by dozens of agricultural associations and coalitions including NCBA, was sent to Governors and state officials asking states “to increase truck weights on all U.S. highways and Federal Interstate Highways in your state to a minimum of 88,000 pounds—while respecting bridge and posted seasonal or special road and/or local limitations.”

The letter states that “Establishing a minimum of 88,000 pounds ensures that a minimum harmonized weight exists across the country and further ensures that essential shipments adhering to this common increase will not be impeded at state lines.”

While many states have acted and increased truck weights, California has yet to do so. CCA will keep you informed of any related updates.
