Public Health is No. 1, Says U.S. District Judge in Denial of FMC Motion to Shelve the LA-LB Clean Trucks Programs
Date:4/16/2009

blic interest in clean air that Judge Leon relies on in his opinion. Despite the Virginia-based American Trucking Association's maneuvering, many of its local and national members, comprised of nearly 1,000 trucking companies large and small, applied to become concessionaires and have purchased thousands of trucks, signaling a readiness to grow in an asset-based market.

"Diesel kills people in my neighborhood each and every week," said Bismark Sanchez Jr., a harbor-area resident. "As a father and a port truck driver, I am happy this judge ruled that my city's clean-air program is legal. But I'm scared that the hired guns at the American Trucking Association want another court to allow the industry to go on polluting."

Last winter, local residents and members of the over 80 national, state and local organizations comprising the Coalition for Clean & Safe Ports generated over 10,000 e-mails and postcards to Members of Congress representing pollution-affected regions surrounding the LA, Long Beach and Oakland ports. They urged their representatives to review the obstructionist actions of the FMC, and called on their elected leaders to help appoint new commissioners that share President Barack Obama's commitment to the environmentally and economically sound LA Clean Trucks Program.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, along with Senators Boxer, Feinstein and the entire Democratic California delegation to Congress have each written to the FMC, urging it not to overstep its jurisdiction by interfering with a program that would "actually strengthen competition within the port trucking industry as well as between port trucking and their retail clients. Since port trucking costs are a relatively small component of overall transportation costs, the increased operational costs required by this program will be far outweighed by the overwhelming public benefits."
