Last week, some Members of Congress questioned whether the ELD compliance date of December 18, 2017, should be delayed. Beyond asking that question, some of those Members of Congress took action toward that end. Their action was a first step in what can be a lengthy legislative process. Since the federal legislative process is confusing for some, I thought it might be helpful to (1) briefly describe the relevant legislative actions taken this week, and (2) communicate the legislative process that still remains for any type of ELD delay to happen.
