Craig Patterson [Iowa Public Transit Association]
Reps. Mommsen, Meyer and Siegrist,The Iowa Public Transit Association (IPTA) has recently changed its registration to show its support for this legislation. The CDL process is still a challenge for a lot of public transit providers, due to scheduling, availability, and other factors. However, we appreciate the Iowa DOT's steps toward addressing this with bills like this one. We stand ready to work with you and others in advancing this legislation. Thank you!
Susan Fenton [Iowa Department of Transportation]
