Wisconsin reintroduces legislation to support women in trucking

The Promoting Women in Trucking Workforce Act, introduced by Sens. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., and Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., directs the #FMCSA administrator to create a #Women of #Trucking Advisory Board. The Women of Trucking Advisory Board would increase opportunities, mentorship, training, and equality for women in this vital industry.

Senator Tammy Baldwin and other members of the Senate Committee of Commerce, Science and Transportation reintroduced the Promoting Women in Trucking Workforce Act Saturday.

 “Women currently make up less than 10 percent of the truck driving workforce, and removing the barriers that get in the way of women pursuing and retaining careers in trucking is key. I’m proud to lead this bipartisan effort with Senator Moran because more job opportunities for Wisconsin women will lead to more economic security for working families.”
