New federal trucking bill will expand safe parking for big rigs

U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, R-Murphysboro, is in a very small group in the U.S. House of Representatives: He is one of only a handful of representatives with a commercial driver’s license. Even fewer members of Congress have driven the number of trucks or miles Bost has driven.

He stopped by Thomason Express in Marion, IL Tuesday to talk about a bill he sponsored, the Truck Parking Safety Improvement Act.
