We are calling on ALL AMERICANS to stand up and take action. Our elected representatives are once again dragging their feet. On June 3, 2008, testimony was given before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation regarding the obvious manipulation of our energy prices. The desperately needed TRUCC bills (S.2910 & H.R.5977), which directly affect American's pocketbooks and will greatly assist in the survival of our professional drivers, are still sitting in sub-committees. No bills exist at this time relating to the domestic production of our resources to bring an end to our economic crisis. This is beyond being acceptable...action MUST be taken NOW before it's too late for America. You may not want to believe the level of urgency we are facing...but it is serious. We need All American citizens to become active and demonstrate to our elected representatives that action must be taken NOW.
Following is a statement we ask All Americans to send to their representatives, and we also are asking for All Americans to participate every Wednesday in a slow-down action to demonstrate to our elected officials our strength in numbers and unity. When travelling our roadways...drive the legal minimum speed limit and stay to the right on interstates and 5mph below the posted speed on all other roadways. This action is within our state and federal laws, and will save you money on your fuel costs.
It's time for all Americans to stand up and speak out. It's obvious our elected officials are not going to get anything done to protect our great country unless we light a fire under their butts. We can no longer allow the slow wheels of our government to continue to let Americans be robbed of our way of life.

To Our Elected Representatives,
Professional drivers are being driven into bankruptcy. Companies are going under. American jobs are being lost by the tens of thousands. These are realities you, Our Elected Representatives, continues to allow with your in-action.
We have taken our voice to the hill and spoke of the actions we need. We have impressed upon you, Our Elected Representatives, the actions necessary to protect our way of life. We have given you, Our Elected Representatives, the information, and direction, to accomplish the necessary action we need.
We have seen an attempt to do something with the American Energy Production Act of 2008...only to see the majority of you, Our Elected Representatives, vote it down. There’s now bills in both houses sitting in committees (TRUCC -- S.2910 & H.R.5977) without any information regarding when, or if, these desperately needed bills will ever come to be. Bills which are desperately needed to protect professional drivers from the unscrupulous actions by brokers. We have seen the testimony given before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation, detailing the need for regulations within the market to eliminate the speculator’s manipulation of our energy prices. And yet we still have no action from you, Our Elected Representatives. This goes beyond being not acceptable - allowing professional drivers, and American citizens, to continue to be robbed of our way of life. The time has now come for you, Our Elected Representatives, to act. How much more will it take to convince you, Our Elected Representatives, that something has to be done immediately.
Actions Needed Immediately:
1.) The immediate passing of S.2910 & H.R.5977 (TRUCC) to bring transparency to the trucking industry. To put professional drivers in the position of being able to make proper decisions regarding their business. It is only right that a businessman should be given the right to know he is being fairly paid for his services. Remove the broker’s ability to continue to rob our professional drivers…the backbone of this great country’s economy.
2.) The immediate action necessary, as testified by Mr. Greenberger, Mr. Soros, Mr. Ramm and Dr. Cooper, before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation regarding the re-instatement of commodity regulations which existed for 78 years before you, Our Elected Representatives, abandoned/changed those regulations…thus leading up to the current economic crisis America faces today. Testimony has been given by intelligent, competent and knowledgeable individuals. Individuals very much aware of the market they speak about.
3.) A commitment to open your doors to more than special interest groups, large corporations and commission representatives…but to professional drivers, and American citizens, with pertinent input to what’s happening to us. A commitment to pursue listening, and acting accordingly, to the will of the American people. A commitment to become more aware and active with the American people you represent. A commitment to understand the realities of what your decisions on the hill does to the American people.
America is standing on the edge of economic collapse and you, Our Elected Representatives, refuse to take the immediate steps, and action, necessary to protect our country. We are in need and you, Our Elected Representatives, are not doing the job we have elected you to do. We will begin to demonstrate our strength of unity through slow-downs across the nation. As each passing week goes by which you, Our Elected Representatives, does not get something done…we will grow even larger in number and strength…eventually leading to an America shut-down if necessary. If you, Our Elected Representatives, doesn’t take the steps, and actions, needed to protect our country - there soon will be no country to protect. As Americans, we have no choice but to demand you put the interests of the citizens of this nation first, and take the necessary steps NOW to stop the impending disaster facing our nation.
