McDonnell Seeks Trucks to Register Fleets in Va.

July 2, 2010

Gov. Bob McDonnell is hoping to attract trucking firms to title and register their fleets in Virginia.

McDonnell issued a proclamation this week that expedites the safety inspection process for commercial motor vehicles traveling on Virginia's highways by recognizing federally authorized safety inspection programs.

His office says the proclamation eliminates layers of duplicate federal and state mandates and makes Virginia more attractive to trucking companies for purposes of titling and registering their vehicles.

McDonnell said the change gives trucking companies flexibility to keep fleets safely moving from state to state without stopping at a Virginia inspection station every year.
