ABSTRACT
The article reports on the response of the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) Tank Conference to proposals by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) in 2011. According to the TTMA, the proposals will create hardship for the tank truck industry. A letter was sent by TTMA president Jeff Sims asking PHMSA to withdraw the proposal due to faulty assumptions in its economic analysis, among others. It lists reasons why TTMA requested that DOT 407's and MC 307's be excluded from this rulemaking such as lack of evidence.
