Transportation Exec Dale Krapf to Testify Before Congress
on implementation of 2015 Surface Transportation Act
Washington, DC – A leading national transportation executive, Dale Krapf, will testify Tuesday, May 22, 2018, before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s Highways and Transit Subcommittee. Krapf is the Immediate Past Chairman of the Board of the United Motorcoach Association and Chairman of The Krapf Group, one of the largest passenger transportation companies in the nation. He will focus his remarks on the implementation of the FAST Act (Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act of 2015).
Krapf served as Chairman of the Board for UMA during the majority of the time policy development and implementation of the Act took place. The Krapf Group, headquartered in West Chester, PA, is also a leading provider of school transportation and Krapf will also be testifying on behalf of the Act’s impact on members of the National School Transportation Association.
Signed into law in December 2015, the FAST Act included many important provisions for passenger carriers, such as sending the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) back to the drawing board regarding financial responsibility limits and a major overhaul of the FMCSA’s beleaguered Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) program. Other key provisions in the comprehensive legislation include equal access for motorcoaches on toll and HOV/HOT lanes and accountability to Congress regarding the length of time it takes to process new entrant applicants.
Krapf will also explain the importance of passing of H.R. 2120, known as BUSREGS-21, and other necessary reforms that would increase passenger safety, support regulatory reform, and promote industry growth to best serve the traveling public and boost the nation’s economy.
