Officials of the City of Los Angeles, the Port of Los Angeles and the Natural Resources Defense Council have steered the public and press wrong about the purpose and results of ATA's lawsuit against the Concession Plans of the ports of L.A. and Long Beach, says American Trucking Associations Vice President of Public Affairs Clayton Boyce.
"These parties continue to mislead the citizens of Los Angeles and Long Beach by claiming that ATA is trying to kill the Ports' Clean Truck Program," Boyce says. "ATA has supported the Clean Truck Program, including the ports' container fee for financing the replacement of older trucks, the banning of older trucks and the Ports Drayage Registry, and continues to do so. ATA has opposed only the Ports' Concession Plans, especially the Los Angeles ban on independent owner operators."
