Brief:
Jones is working with Rep. Ben Glardon, R-Owosso, the Michigan State Police and Michigan Department of Transportation to address a problem Wheeler Trucking has in Michigan delivering new semitrucks over the country using saddle mounts. Senate Bill 274 would help Wheeler Trucking compete by making the state’s artificially short length on truck hauling more in line with federal regulations.
