Will Hope Rivenburg and Family be at GATS? With a little help from…….. OOIDA or the ATA
The families of Murdered Truck Driver Jason Rivenburg are continuing their campaign for “Jason’s Law”, H.R.2156, which will implement a pilot program to address shortages in safe parking for commercial motor vehicles on our National Highway System. It is necessary that we continue to collect as many signatures on the petition as possible in order to ensure the passing of the bill. Jason’s Law will create the 6 year Pilot Program in the amount of 120 million dollars in grants over a 5 year period.The legislation allows the Secretary of Transportation, in cooperation with appropriate State, regional, and local governments, to allocate funds to improve rest areas that serve the National Highway System.
Whenever I speak to Hope Rivenburg ( Jason’s Widow), gratitude just pours out of her. It’s quite humbling to speak to someone who has gone th
rough so much, and yet so much of her words are in appreciation of others. She appreciates all the websites and blogs who have helped in the support of â��Jason’s Law”, no matter how small or large they are, all the individuals who have expressed their most sincere condolences, and everyone who has signed the petition.
Along with the many individuals, trucking blogs and websites such as this
one, there are 2 major organizations who are supporting Jason’s Law… OOIDA and The ATA.
