The article examines the efforts of the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) to gain support for a doubles tow-away proposal in 2010. The NATM has been involved in proposing inclusions into the Transportation Reauthorization Bill that will allow trailer manufacturers to haul light- and medium-duty trailers from the manufacturing plant to the dealer through a double configuration. The organization asserts that the proposal should be considered for its positive impact on reducing cost and air emissions.
