According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 12 Mexican trucking companies are waiting for approval in the program, but Keeling said he’s heard there are 21 companies on the list.

Keeling said industry advocates were also keeping an eye on Congress to make sure that lawmakers sympathetic to Teamster demands to keep Mexican trucks out of the U.S. don’t kill the program again by cutting funds.

“Congress is going to mark up the Highway Transportation and Reauthorization bill in the House in the next couple of days so we are watching that so someone doesn’t try to do something mischievous,” Keeling said Feb. 1.
