    TRALA IN THE NEWS - On April 27, 2017 Governor Eric Holcomb (R-IN) signed H.B. 1002 into law. TRALA began lobbying the state legislature after the initial draft for H.B. 1002 included a $15 non-apportioned TIIF on all vehicles registered in Indiana.  TRALA and a coalition of motor carriers, the Indiana Motor Truck Association, and the Scopelitis law firm, were able to get an amendment included during the House markup of the bill which would apportion the $15 TIIF for all IRP vehicles including vehicles under 26,000 lbs.  FULL STORY

    On April 27, 2017 Governor Eric Holcomb (R-IN) signed H.B. 1002 into law.
