TEANA’s Legislative actions began in 2011 when TEANA formed a Legislative Committee and hired Hank Seaton to be an advisor to the Committee and Board on all Legislative Issues affecting the Expediting Industry. TEANA Legislative Committee members work hard to keep TEANA members updated with the latest legislative news, issues, and bills in the expediting industry.

CSA - Past, Present, Futue Webinar Hosted by Irwin Shires
Get a real understanding of what CSA is, how it affects you, and where it is going with “CSA—Past, Present, and Future.”
Hosted by Irwin Shires, 25-year veteran of the transportation industry and a member of TEANA’s legislative committee, this presentation shows everyone how the CSA BASIC scores are compiled, how to “drill down” through the FMCSA website to find the crucial data you need to see how your score compares, and will update the very latest news on legislative efforts to get the scores hidden from public view.
You can view the webinar here.
