On Tuesday, June 13, 2011, J D Morrissette, testified before a House subcommittee hearing titled “Do Not Enter: How Proposed Hours of Service Trucking Rules are a Dead End for Small Businesses.”

Morrissette is President of Interstate Van Lines, a mid-sized household goods carrier and military approved transportation service provider based in Springfield, Virginia. JD has more than 20 years of experience in the specialized transportation industry. His testimony was shared on behalf of the American Moving and Storage Association and their 3200+ members.

The testimony before the House subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight and Regulations was organized in response to the proposed new hours of service rules that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued in December, 2010.
