A Federal rule that some say had negative impacts on the trucking industry will no longer be enforced.

At Teal's Express in Marcy today, Congressman Richard Hanna announced that the rule - which cost the trucking industry an estimated $400 million in just the last year - will no longer be enforced.

The rule mandated that drivers couldn't drive overnight and had to wait 34 hours between driving shifts, including waiting until 5 a.m. to hit the road, rules that Brian Brundige of Terpening Trucking says was handcuffing truckers.

Brundige and Hanna talk about the benefits of repealing the rule:

Also in attendance were Mike Teal of Teal's Express, Mike Chellis of the New York Motor Truck Association and Mark Henderson of Patriot Tank Lines.
