Task 52, FY 1992, "Support for the Joint Committee on Domestic Freight Issues" (Mr. Isaac Shafran). Responding to Resolution AR-2-91, AASHTO has formed a Joint Committee on Domestic Freight Policy. The Joint Committee, composed of more than 40 individuals, will be making decisions in a very contentious area. This funding is to provide help in digesting information and identifying the mission and needs of the Committee. The initial meeting of the Joint Committee was held on April 3, 1992, at which Mr. Shafran presented A Review of National Domestic Freight Policy. During a subsequent meeting in Charleston, South Carolina, on July 24-26, 1992, Mr. Shafran assisted with the meeting and presented additional information. The AASHTO Subcommittee on Truck Size and Weight of the Joint Committee on Domestic Freight Policy has requested an expansion of the resource document, Synthesis on Impact of Truck Size and Weight. The revised document has been completed and the project is completed.
