Most forestry operations have had to haul more weight to make up the pay gap that hasn't adjusted to inflation.  Most states around us allow forestry operations to haul 90,000 gvw while our limit is lower.  Due to enhanced lawyer litigation, local mills are starting to write fines and put policies in place to punish overweight trucks to try to release themselves of liability.  We need laws that match North Carolina on forestry operations.  We already can haul the weight under certain circumstances so if it's safe then it should always be safe. 

 

The forestry industry employees around 90k people and has an 18+ billion dollar direct impact on our economy.  That is something we need to protect.
