June 28, 1991|By Journal of Commerce

WASHINGTON -- A House subcommittee will follow the Senate's lead and propose a freeze on the operations of extra-big trucks to the 20 states that currently allow them.

Rep. Norman Y. Mineta, D-Calif., chairman of the Surface Transportation subcommittee of the House Public Works and Transportation Committee, said the subcommittee is building a freeze on longer-combination vehicles into its massive five-year, $153.5 billion highway and mass transit reauthorization bill.
