My column this week points out that Sen. John Boozman and Sen. Mark Pryor did something seemingly rare this past week for a Republican and Democrat: They agreed on something.
The two Arkansas senators introduced the Safe Roads Act, which would create a nationwide database for truck drivers with drug and alcohol violations. Currently, trucking companies must rely on those drivers to self-report their violations when they hire them – which they don’t always do.
My point: If the two senators can agree on this relatively minor piece of legislation, can they work together to balance the federal budget? They had better, for the good of us all.
