We encourage you to contact your senators and ask them to support S. 1839. View sample message below.
Support S. 1839 – The Modern, Clean and Safe Trucks Act of 2019
Dear Senator ________:
As a business owner in (insert your city) and member of NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry, I ask you to support S. 1839, The Modern, Clean and Safe Trucks Act of 2019.
This legislation would repeal the 100-year-old 12% federal sales tax on heavy trucks — the largest excise tax levied by Congress.
Eliminating this tax and replacing it with an alternative funding mechanism for the Highway Trust Fund would encourage economic growth and allow purchasers to invest in domestically produced trucks with the latest environmental and safety technologies.
Thank you for your consideration.
