Family of Jason Rivenburg Advises on Support of Bill


Timothy Hardendorf, Jason Rivenburg‘s uncle, appeared on trucking talk radio: Truth About Trucking “LIVE” sharing his family’s quest in helping to provide safe truck parking for all truckers, through Jason’s Law, H.R. 2156.  The bill, now sits in Committee and the show largely dealt with the aspect that now is the time to act.

Mr. Hardendorf shared the family’s sincere thanks for all of the support that truckers and citizens alike, have expressed for the passage of Jason’s Law.  Greatly supported by truck drivers and organizations such as the ATA and OOIDA, Mr. Hardendorf stressed that the bill is still just in the first phase and we all must continue to let our voices be heard and to advise our representatives and senators that we fully support H.R. 2156.

Please take a few minutes out of your day and make a phone call to your state representative and senator and let them know that you want their support for bill S.971 – Mr. Hardendorf also pointed out that just by dropping a post card in the mail with the words, “I support Jason’s Law” written on the front, will help bring about this much needed victory.
