WI Lawmakers Gear Up for Trucking Industry

Nearly three-quarters of all Wisconsin towns rely on trucks to bring them their groceries, gas, and just about everything else, but there is a growing shortage of truck drivers. 

Lawmakers at the state capitol listened to trucking experts yesterday as part of a push to have the state support the trucking industry. Wisconsin’s Supply Chain Committee is considering a plan to help train, recruit, and in some cases pay bonuses to new truck drivers. 

State Rep. Bob Brooks from Saukville says inflation and the nation’s shortages are all tied to trucking.
