H.R. 2258: ADVANCE Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2258 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 2258 exempts active duty military and reserve personnel with qualifying experience from certain testing requirements when they try to obtain a commercial driver’s license. Currently, certain veterans are eligible for this exemption, which was included in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.

Background Under current Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, states can waive certain testing requirements for former members of the armed forces and reserve components if they had qualifying experience while serving in the armed forces or the reserve components. This bill would extend this exemption to individuals who are currently serving in either the armed services or reserve components. According to the American Trucking Association, there is an estimated 40,000 truck driver shortage nationally.
